Sorry about the mix up, I just remember the last name wasnt sure if it was you or your brother. As for the fight game, I think You will have an Email on the way, Timing though, just as I had my game tight I settle down, get engaged and have a Good ole company man type job, And living here on the South east coast is a no mans land for well run shows.
As for Conan He is the very epitome of NHB, and the no holds barred is taken to the Nth degree. Agreed on the term Martial arts, people still to this day seem confused as to reality and marketability. 10 years ago I would never have thought TKD would still be packing the house the way it does even now. I guess what the American general public does not know is what makes them the American general public.
PS saying I got my game tight IN NO WAY implies I was ready to compete in the UFC, but I did feel ready for prelim level fights in something like King of the Cage or another national level show.
