    Couldn't have said it better. He is a brave and honest person and I got nothing but love for him.

    Thanks for posting the video, much appreciated.

    Perhaps it was the widespread mocking that lead him to changing his training routine.

    Getting the **** beat out of him might have contributed?

    From a link from Sambosteve, Fred wrote a letter for the Coalition to Legalize Mixed Martial Arts:

    Guys, I know I have internet fever after being on almost all day today, but seriously...

    I am already a little daredevil, and stuff,
    but I'll die a happy man if I have half the guts this guy has.

    Props to him.
    I am a firm believer that the true fight isn't inside the cage it's everything outside you have to deal with, while trying to be a fighter. Job, family, training, stress. the guy on the other side of the cage is just a physical embodiement of what you must overcome.
    Beating there ass is just a perk.

    Never gave him a second thought at the time. Loads of people got a rude awaking in those days.

    What a fucking star now though. Top Marks to the guy. Inspirational stuff.

    I don't believe I've ever actually said anything bad about Fred Ettish. I thought he showed tremendous courage and indomitable spirit when he fought back then.
