VS. <3 URIAH HALL
TUF CHINA, COMPLETES FILMING
"To anyone who points to my Jay Heiron WIN to discredit my abilities consider this. At that point I was LESS than 3 years into my career and relatively inexperienced despite already being the Bellator Champion. I had a tough fight against the #16 ranked fight in the world(at the time) and was able to get the job done. I have learned and progressed significantly since then.
As a point of reference the man fighting for the WW UFC Belt this weekend Johny Hendricks LOST a Unanimous Dec fight to Rick Story(who wasn't near the top 16 at that point) after fighting for MORE than 3 years.

"This guy is the type w too much time &money. I got a really weird vibe from all the detailed questions he asked" -Tara LaRosa

"I might have to kill myself sooner than I had planned....fuck it! ...MAYBE...standby though, I may want to cause more ruckus first... Fuck War Machineand for not texting me back!" -
