    Congrats. Tell us about it. What was it? Cage fight or kickboxing or what did you do?

    Thank you. It was in a cage, out in western Mass. I've always fought walking weight because I'm so light, I basically can't cut weight because of how light I am. When I was at the apex of me fighting I was walking around at 135, but that's when I was like snorting protein powder and lifting every day. My natural weight is around 120ish. So I always come in lighter than the other dude, because you have to figure someone fighting flyweight (125) likely walks around at 140 or so. The one advantage to not cutting is you don't gas nearly as quick, which I learned pretty quick when I was younger; like I learned that it was a huge advantage to be able to outlast people who had cut, because you have to figure while they weighed in at 125, they're likely walking into the ring at their natural weight and have 10-15 pounds on me. I went in at 121 so I was definitely at a size disadvantage.

    I learned to fight small at a really young age because I had a great instructor/friend who taught me I basically had to embrace the fact that I was not a big guy, and own it. I can go toe to toe with huge dudes who outweigh me by like a hundred pounds and beat the fuck out of them because I can fight small. So that's more or less how I handled this fight.

    The dude was way bigger than me, it looked like he cut a lot. He definitely acknowledged how small I am and he came out trying to take my head off. I'm a fast little bastard and basically, I kept intentionally putting myself into positions where he thought he would be able to clean my clock, then I moved. By the end of the first round he was absolutely exhausted. My wind is probably my biggest advantage; I competitively distance swim, I do like ten mile open water swimming races, so I can just go and go.

    He came out absolutely gassed, and I started harassing him with leg kicks - my right leg to his lead left leg. After about fifteen of them, his lead hand started dropping when he stepped, which I took note of. So I booted him in the thigh, his left hand dropped, and I stepped into the kick and hit him with a cross to the jaw. He stumbled back and I booted him as hard as I could in the stomach with my foot into the cage, then laid into him and he dropped.

    It was fun as hell. I still always fight but it's been a solid five years since I've fought competitively. I had a blast. I got to come out to music too and I came out to It's Raining Men because I wanted to beat someone up after coming out to the gayest song possible, haha.

    Nice work. Is the one and done or are you planning to keep fighting for a while?
    Also, did you happen to see Alistair Overeem’s face explode when he fought Rozenstruik last week? I’m on my phone or I’d post a picture. You have to see it if you haven’t. He got hit and the entire left side of his mouth blew up like there was a firecracker under his lip. It’s horrific.

    Do you still do that stuff, Butch? I was doing BJJ for a little while with my brother back when it started getting really popular, but I didn’t stick with it. I like it but I just got too busy. That was probably 12 years ago or more. Holy shit I’m old.

    I'm always on the East Coast. I live in Boston, haha.

    I have a place to roll. I've been teaching and training at the same school for like 25 years. If you ever come out here you can crash with me and I can take you to come bang around with a really good group of dudes. There's also an awesome place we could go after, it's a gaming bar where you pay at the door and it's just a bunch of old school arcade games and you just drink and game all night.

    I love barcades. There’s a really cool one close to me and if I was still single I’d probably live there...which would not increase my chances of ever becoming not single I’m certain.

    They have one of my favorite old school arcade games at the one in Boston. The old Simpsons arcade game. It's impossibly hard but so much fun.
