Starnes Gives New Meaning to the Phrase "Well Rounded Fighter"
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. LINK
