"What Mike Pierce said about me hitting Abel when he was on a knee saying stop is BULL SHIT. Abel wasn't some random person off the street either. At the time he was 1-1 as a professional and had been training with us for 3 months. He was a 4 time All-American for William Penn college in Iowa and actually beat me at nationals my first match my junior year at Southern Oregon University. What Mike also decided to forget to say is how many times Abel had tapped him that week in training (I think 2 by guillotine). What Mike also forgot to admit was how well Abel did in sparring against Brad Blackburn (at the time current UFC welterweight). Abel was new to our team but not new to the sport and not a poor defenseless kid. Abel did have Vertigo and had taken time off. Pat would not let him spar without a doctor's note saying he was cleared. I had talked with Abel before the session and asked him how his Vertigo was doing, he said he was cleared but to be safe I told him I would only throw body shots. We do spar hard at BRAVE LEGION but not stupid. I would never hit anyone that was telling me stop. Pat would never encourage the continuance of hitting someone that says stop. Anyone that has half a brain would realize this wouldn't be something that could be kept secret for very long. How come this sounds like an isolated incident? Probably because it's a lie. Anyone that knows me would agree that I am not that kind of a person. Mike and Pat were never friends, Mike had been kicked off our team before because he wasn't a team player and it was just a fact their personalities clashed. The only reason we let Mike back on the team is because I told Pat I wanted him as a practice partner. Pat is an awesome coach a great friend and only has our team's best interest in mind. I listen to Pats coaching and don't think listening to my coach is a bad thing. I am a college graduate, spent 8 years in the National Guard and was a Platoon Leader for almost two years. I make my own decisions but work as a teammate with my coach and business partner Pat White bottom line, and because Mike is not a team player he probably wouldn't understand this concept. Mike is obviously trying to maliciously affect our gym and my career by telling lies about Pat and Myself. He seems like a crazy ex-girlfriend that tries to make their ex-boyfriends life miserable. I don't intend on having an Internet battle just giving my side to everyone. I have read the forums and I am seriously amazed at some of the things people say only hearing one side."

I was expecting something like this. I believe Rick Story more than Mike Pierce.
Pierce seemed to have told the story a bit loosely...

^ Book Pierce vs. Story = Good shit

Does being a team player mean beating down a guy who is hurt and is wanting it to stop?

Maybe that's why Pierce didn't want to be a team player. B/c Pierce was suppose to go in the cage aswell but didn't.

I think we need to hear it from Abel himself.

Abel Trujillo is the guy they are talking about. I would be very interested in hearing his side. MMA @ Work. . . get on it!!!

Here are links to his fightfinder, and 2005 NAIA results showing Abel beat Rick Story. He's the guy that makes this story.

Pierce vs Story good fight for the story line, but I think it would be a boring decision

I can't remember if I posted on the thread regarding Pierce's side of the story but upon hearing two completely different stories, it is my opinion both parties are not telling the truth. It is Story's job to defend his camp and paint it White while Pierce is obviously on a mission to paint it Black.

I agree with Pookie. Let this be decided in the traditional manners of knighthood.

Bunch of High School drama bullshit.

I agree, let's hear Abel's side of it.
