Former Olympian Rick Hawn (5-0) reached a conclusion that's well-known to many international competitors: you can't eat gold medals.

With that in mind, the 33-year-old Hawn, who faces Tom Gallicchio tonight in the main event of World Championship Fighting 9 in Wilmington, Mass., scrambled to fulfill a long-held dream of fighting in mixed martial arts and competed in his first fight within six months of picking up a four-ounce glove.
