    Well, in any case, Black Belt Magazine caters mainly to LARPers, so it's not really surprising that a glorified pro wrestler should be on of their heroes.

    As far as I know, the only legit MMA win Vale ever got was against Mike Bitonio ( A smaller guy who was associated with the school that produced John Matua, the guy Tank Abbott Koed in 8 seconds).

    Technically, one of my early instructors was a Vale affiliate. That doesn't mean I won't continue to make fun of ICY for having Vale in his lineage, though.

    Mike Bitonio took a savage beating from Vale back in the day. I mean fucking savage. They wouldn't let that kinda fight go on these days. I think Mike took a lot of facial reconstructions after that massacre too.

    This is what I was thinking when I heard " 6'4" 250lbs."

    While it does merit mockery, the alternative was Wado-Ryu, I chose the lesser of the evils.

    250lbs is only when he's not carrying around any flab.
