"I believe it to be the more damaging to the participant because of the repeated blows to the head."
"A streetfight? Okay. Look, I boxed in the Army. I also have a 1st dan in Kuk Sool Won. I wrestled a little in high school and a little college. Took some Judo when I was kid.
For a streetfight. I have a license to…"
"I love almost all beer, but I often find myself drinking either one of the three: Fireman's 4, Dos Equis or Saint Arnold Lawn Mower.
I'm drinking Dos Equis now. Something about it is just so damn tasty. "
"Chuck Liddell is an extremely gifted fighter. He won allot of the time by beating his opponents liver into submission. MMA fighters do not protect their body as well as boxers due to the dynamic of submissions being more of a danger in the sport.…"
"Former UFC champion Chuck Liddell, who won A LOT of fights by knockout, often said that if you're trying to knock a guy out, you probably won't but if you're just trying to make good contact, you probably will."
"Boxing and fighting are not about hitting someone hard and knocking them out with one punch. More often than not it is a light counter punch that knocks someone out, it is usually the one that they don't see coming. Smart technical fighting…"
"I joined a boxing gym, and it was one of the best workouts I ever got, I never got into any fights but maybe people just knew not to fuck with me. Boxing is practical as far as having your guard up, fighting stance, and delivering hard and fast…"

"It's weird because, the older I've gotten, the more confident I've become in my Icantakehim-ability. That's probably because I started martial arts later in life. I certainly don't have a bottomless gas tank but, if we…"
"Or at least I like to think I can!
The thought occurred to me the other day that the list of people I can't take (insert Andrew's quote here) is getting longer every day. At the time I was near a swaggering young punk with a very loud…"

"you're saying, if he had been the biggest producer in a top-producing state, that would have been different?
