Buy the ticket, take the ride
MMAjunkie.com: I've heard you have one of the most unique stories about getting into the sport. How did you get started in MMA?
Doug Marshall: Well, I was always a fan of the UFC, and as a young man, I got into my fair share of fights. My dad and I were at a WEC show, and we had both had a few beers. This guy (Anthony Arria) enters the cage, and I point at him and tell my dad that I could kick his ass. My dad told me to shut up and have another beer or do something about it. I started training the following Monday at a small gym. What a lot of people don't know is the first thing I started working on was my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
MMAjunkie.com: And three short months later, you had a 32-second submission victory in your debut.
Doug Marshall: Once I had my first fight, I fell in love with the competition, and I was driven to put on a great show for the crowds.

I was born to lead, not to read!!!!
