He invited me over to his house to watch fights with him, and Doris, he would drive me home too, because I drank a lot of beer there.

He paid for the Westside Barbell Tatoo that’s on my back, he was gracious enough and trusted me enough, to do many YouTube vids with me, I was never a powerlifter, never pretended to be, our relationship was based on his love for fighting, he Drove me down to Cincinnati to spar one of his then MMA fighters Chris he was working within a cage.

Many memories, and many lessons watching and talking with him at Westside. Just a real dude, an original, doing it his way for life.
