    In contrast, we have Ronda Rousey who said she bet all her money (on herself) against Tate.

    What a girl.

    Yes, that is a good point. But what about the mob? Realistically, if you bet your house and car against yourself, somebody's going to know what's up. What's a good round sum in those kind of fights that would slide by unnoticed?

    I guess what I'm really asking is how much money is going through one of these fights? I mean Kimbo Slice has internet popularity, but outside of that I doubt he'd have the same recognition as a Mayweather, a Morales or a Pacquiao would--at least in boxing, I don't know about MMA, though.

    Sweet.

    He was punching him like the collective karmic debt he'd accrued was coming to collections, mostly on his face.

    Seems like that would vary person to person, but through networking and such I'll bet you could make a large sum of money that wasn't directly traceable back to you.

    A lot of the low level ones aren't that profitable. ****, if the mob is involved, your pay can be as low as a set of unbroken kneecaps.

    james wade is my coach. he's a great coach who's done a lot with bjj, judo, and boxing, but he's getting old. the fight with kimbo was 1. a paycheck and 2. a last shot to make a name for himself.

    he's a really awesome guy though; everybody at my club loves having him as a coach.

    I understand you're curious. It's probably right up your alley, so don't dwell on it: jump right in.

    Strangely enough, among all of my quirks and fetishes, feet are in absentia. I admit that even I am a little stunned at this revelation, being that I am a fucking deviant of the first order, but other than the normal "no abnormal growths" rule, feet are feet and that's about it. Some girls like the toe sucking thing, cool, I'm all for pleasuring the woman, "no abnormal growths" and the obligatory "clean" rule (for all sexual activity) applies, but I'm not one for foot worship.

    I will say though, I once had a chick from India or something, gorgeous body, face, etc but her feet, dear God I'm dry wretching just thinking about them. They were like a horror flick. That might have contributed to my indifference to feet and also, thankfully, to my love of the knee high sock.

    Well, that's good to know. I'd hate for it to be ground and repressed into one of those 'hate sandwiches' that people are always selling. Someone needs to let some dudes know there's a reason Subway doesn't have those on the menu.
