    I think it goes without saying that his opponent should be Kalib Starnes.

    what I found amusing about Fred's performance back in the day was how he used texbook Karate/Kenpo techniques and stances, for all the world to see in a real fight.

    I see nothing to mock him about it, especially since he has turned himself around in short order to train right and stop talking nonsense, but for a few fleeting minutes we saw everything from ridiculous stances, being out-struck because he attempted karate blocks thus leaving himself exposed, to trying the "high block and side kick the knee from the ground" defense when knocked down, to inevitably curling up into a fetal position as he was pounded like lunchmeat.

    If he gets back in the cage, I'll be rooting for him :)

    1994 being part of the dark ages as it was, few ever found out the backstory, and fred is still (rather unfairly) used as a punchline.
    This is correct.

    Also, I just got confirmation (literally 5 mins ago) that this story is completely legit, the ball is now in YAMMA's court.

    Dude, you should see him today. He's a beast, his cardio alone would put most 20 year olds to shame.

    Not sure where he trains out of these days, but it is a Miletich affiliate.

    He still does Matsumura Kenpo but is much more focused on MMA (training fighters etc).

    Give the man a shot already! from my understanding he has been trying to redeem himself for years. I personally would rather see him fight (even taking a one sided beating) than watch Kalib Starns run around the ring for ten minutes. Any suggestions on who he should fight? How about Scott Morris? I can't find the Ettish fight anywhere help!

    YEAH!

    Throws hands up in the air.

    YEAH!


    For those of you who don't know, Ettish is a man who took a bad, bad asswhooping in UFC 2 at the hands of Johnny Rhodes. In UFC 2, John McCarthy did not have the authority to stop a fight on his own judgement, so the beating was prolonged. Still, Ettish toughed it for over three minutes of him getting his ass stomped, and only gave up when Rhodes locked in an RNC.


    Over the years, Ettish has taken alot of **** (Notice this brutally outdated website: http://www.ettishfetalfighting.8m.com/ ). In these post Napoleon Dynamite years, Ettish is taking even more **** for his resemblance to Gib ( Observe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1Jvsa-1O2Y ).
