It does come in handy.
I will run away from a fight if I can I learned my lesson the hard way.
My ears were the size of baseballs and I had a main event fight at the Orange County fairgrounds in front of 6,500 people 3 weeks before so I was
invincible. I hit this guy 1 time and I didn't even hit him that hard but I was drunk and acting like a moron ruining my career which was exploding at
the time. Assault with a deadly weapon and great bodily injury for 8 fractures and a broken orbital.
Oh the police saw my ears and looked me up on Sherdog and watched my Youtube videos so they added that in the police report and the judge told me I
got what the least was I was going to get so take the plea bargain or go to trial.
That's what I deserved.
While I was sitting in jail for that six months I was suppose to fight for Strikeforce in Sept 08 at the last fight they ever had at the Playboy
mansion, lost out on 22k and sponsorships that were like massive blessings.
I also had the opportunity to fight on Affliction 2, and 3 but the guys at 170 wanted nothing to do with me (JJ Ambrose and Bret Cooper, or Brent I
forget) but guess what? They didn't want anything to do with me after that so I missed out on 3.
Then after I got out of jail I had no sponsors and no form of income nowhere to live or anything, start from scratch.
