    I don't know if I would give it up completely. I think about when MMA fights first started, and the brutality of it all, with teeth flying and bones broken, befoire all the rules went into effect. Let's face it, when you go into any ring, it's your intention to win at any cost. If you go in half-ass, you may wind up on the receiving end.

    I may give up the ring, but I would not give up the fight. Were it some hoodlum on the street. I'm gonna take him down and hard with no regret!

    Would it be too much of a social faux pas to proclaim that he wasn't strong enough in the dark side and then shoot lightning out of my hands at his family?

    I approach competitive work requests and other corporate commissions with the same attitude. Its not about doing the best proposal I can showcasing my work and experience but how fast I can find the other guys and shank them in the kidneys with a rusty pair of scissors. It's totally justified because if I can't get commissions I don't get paid.

    I remember reading the interviews from Gabriel Ruelas when he finally retired in 2003, and watching some of the videos they have of his fights both before and after the Jimmy Garcia fight. He was a completely different fighter and person. I dont think a neurotypical person could avoid being emotionally affected by something like that.

    Emile Griffith killed a man in the boxing ring after he called him a "maricon" (******). He talks about never getting over it.

    TEAR OUT THEIR HEART, EAT IT, AND GAIN THEIR STRENGTH FOR MY OWN

    I honestly don't know. I'm a complete, absolute ***** when it comes to hurting other people, so I feel bad enough when I accidentally break someone's finger or tweak their back by being a dumbass.

    I was thinking of Emil Griffon, similar story. He didn't quit, but he could never really press an opponent again.

    Do you think he would commentate his own ass beating, and then Joe Rogan would have to correct him about all the things he gets wrong?
