    @ Robin and …Leon, I am always right where the beef IS…. People always ask “where’s the beef?” and answer “right here”… Another question sometimes ask is “are you vegan?” and then if they aren’t I say “well then I am sure you love THE BEEF” (baby)<depending on male or female… lol sorry I am ranting because I painted my house today and I am a massage therapist(rmt) and sometimes in the mma game. But happy to say vodka and soda is just wonderful sometimes. oooooops…. I am very happy to have John in the AFC. I love not flying and having my best friend come home(i bought a house 5 houses down from his childhood house fyi lol), PS there WILL BE BEEF!!! I think topmmanews is best site on net… LOVE YOU all now back to snl #ilovesaturday
    ALL BEEF!!! ALL DAY!!! (and night)

    oh and before bed I would like to reminisce(spelling) My first fight was in 1999.I faught Dan Shenk lost via arm bar I wouldn’t tap broke my elbow… was good war prior… John also faught jeremy edgerton (i think) John mounted him and threw 130 pounches from top (in 50seconds). I knew John was special and nothing makes friends like going to war together. John returning to where he will retire to, is a godsend!!! Good night and “BEEF be with you!!”
