His cell phone rang four days later; 94 hours had passed since the low point of a burgeoning career.

Brock Larson has built his reputation on ruthless aggression. An attack-mode philosophy one second after the referee yells "Bring it on!" had taken him to 26 wins in 28 MMA fights, including five straight, and a breakthrough into many recognized top-10 rankings that rate MMA's top welterweights.

Rewards have never been immediate. Larson's the unpretentious type whose humility was forged on Minnesota's smallest of farms. The buzz from his arm triangle choke submission of Mike Pyle at UFC 98 wasn't loud enough to merit a spot on the main card of Spike TV's free UFC Fight Night 19 event. He was matched against an unknown named Mike Pierce, and another quick pay day figured to finally vault Larson's name into the title picture.
