"What MMA is today, really, is a way to keep a lot of white trash out of jail...Seriously, the way to keep the jail rates down is to give these guys a job. No disrespect to my opponent, Jaime Jara, because he has a ton of tattoos and he's a legitimate full-time fighter. But if you watch that `Ultimate Fighter' show, they all look the same and it amuses the hell out of me."
-- Steve Heath, professional MMA fighter, discussing the transformation of MMA and its participants since the early era of its existence. Heath will be taking on Jamie Jara May 9th on the Pure Combat card in Stockton, CA.
