Everyone I hear from says he is an asshole to train with. As far as the sex parties go I wouldn't know because professional athletes never have wild sex parties like you describe :)

I think marijuana should not be classified as a banned substance.

A/S/L?

It was insane walking out to 60k+ canadians booing me. It was a great experience though and am grateful to have been part of a history making fight card and it was fun finally fighting GSP.

TRT allowed a lot of a grey area. The ban needed to be done.

Freudian slip?

Ive done this 30-something times now so I want to say im getting used to it but you never do. I usually just relax, hang out with my friends and family and try not to get anxious. Head to the arena a few hours before and warm up about an hour before. This is when true focus starts to set in and I get serious. Its funny but I am always more nervous when I corner a teammate then when I fight myself.

Yeah Joe is a cool guy. I would definitely do a show if asked.

I didnt even realize I had been knocked down until reporters started asking questions at the press conference. After the first round I remember my corner telling me I had just slipped. I didn't realize how hard I had been hit until I watched it a week later. The H-bomb is no joke lol
