Wait until he gets introduced to Anderson Silva's knee. That is when things typically turn cloudy.

Everyone (MMA fighters) egos are so big, they rush to blame the other, but not to rush to admit any wrong doing on their part. It's amazing what a "My bad" or "it was my fault" would do to a situation like this. Miscommunication and misunderstanding is one of the most commons reasons for the collapse of any relationship.

But the MMA fighters get to hit a person at the end of day and get paid for it, I would love to do that at my job.
