    This is a serious question, you don't seem like a very big dude. Do you think that not being in the heavyweight category will eventually work against you? For instance if you try to make a career of MMA?

    There is no real career in MMA. I do it because I have a good time, and its fun. Money is nice if I am doing it anyways, but there is no money in it. I fight because I like to train hard, and fighting makes me train hard. People who try to make a cereer out of it usually end of broke and broken, even if they make it. I wont go that route, Ill go as far as I can, but I'm not relying on it. I go to school fulltime, and can stop fighting at any time because I have other options.

    You have a good attitude about your training. Compete just to compete and if someone ever offers you something bigger you can always take it if you want to. There are always tournaments like Mass Destruction and Reality Fighting and now Ring of Combat on the east coast that are taking the mantle from KOTC. KOTC took a big step up in production so they're almost in a UFC type scenario as far as venue. People are going to start to notice those events I mentioned more and more because alot of the people who fight there are almost ready for a UFC/Pride type of event. Over the next couple of years I'll bet more than a few Pride/UFC competitors come from fighters who have fought with those organizations so you never know who might be watching your next fight.

    I think drunkenj said it best.....
