RANDOM TWIDBITS

"Guys, I am gonna compete brown belt no gi world championships." -Daniel Cormier, who recently jumped from white belt to brown belt. The competition would be no gi though, so odds are in the favor of the Olympic wrestler.

"I hate the homeless ... I don't feel sorry for you. If you want change then let me throw it as hard as I can at your dirty face... Hate me all you want Ive been homeless n stung out. I changed that part of my life No sympathy for junkies who talk shit to me for no reason" -Ian McCall

"I did it myself. I'm focusing on junkies here not PTSD and lay offs etc should have clarified. Its called hard work and not giving up" -Ian McCall

"Feeling super human today,trained twice b4 noon and have 2 more 2 go.. I haven't felt like this in years. http://t.co/awCl4AdAHH" -Quinton Jackson, bad news for Tito, TRT seems to be really effective.

""@JustinPopo: @RenzoGracieBJJ Renzo is it true that you are going to fight again? What weight class are you planning?" 155lb" -Renzo Gracie, if the UFC doesn't want him, maybe have him take on ONE FC lightweights.
