Had a bad day? Wife and kids on your nerves, bills late, feeling a little under the weather, that sort of thing? Don’t feel like you can physically or mentally get it together to go to work tomorrow? It’s okay, call in sick, regroup and try again another day.

Sound good? Well, professional fighters don’t have that luxury.

And for all the talk that pro athletes should shut up and suck it up because they’re getting paid money to perform, the fact remains that they are also human beings, and not immune to the everyday stresses and aches and pains that affect all of us. The only thing is, when we have a bad day, we don’t read about it on the Internet.

Enter Kalib Starnes.

I really dont think Kalib Starnes warrants an article of such length.

And back to the point, he is a pretty decent fighter and i hope he can work things out, if anyone wants to see his dominance watch his fight with Jason McDonald.

Ya, he seems like a decent fighter with potential. He just kind of rubbed me the wrong way on TUF.

Does Kalib Starnes really deserve an interview? I mean we are talking about a guy who quit in the TUF semifinals claiming he had a broke rib when it doesn't seem that way considering he was breathing well.

I like kaleb, hes an interesting guy and a good fighter. Hes been through some tough times, and they just came at the wrong time, i think hes got very good potential if he can get his head and heart into the game.
