Back in my amateur days, Kaitlin Young once told me I reminded her of a honey badger. We’ve all seen that fabulous video of the Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger and if you haven’t you need to!

I was very honored to be associated with such a creature being a nature/animal lover and especially coming from such a talented fighter like Kaitlin Young. I definitely saw what she was getting at. However, thinking back on it there are a lot more similarities between the honey badger and I than I was aware of at the time.

The honey badger at first glance doesn’t look like much and can be very easily underestimated. Its small stature being very misleading is something I relate to all too well. Even those who are somewhat aware still have no idea. They can’t! There isn’t enough imagination one can have that can fathom my capabilities. I don’t exactly look like Brock Lesnar or anything!

The honey badger is strong, tireless, and impenetrable. However, I don’t believe its strength or endurance comes from physical ability more than it comes from its “don’t give a ____” mentality. It is the honey badger state of mind that allows it to attack any animal regardless of size or whatever disadvantage it faces. To this day I have always been matched up with people who have either a size advantage or are more experienced. I rise to any challenge and conquer. While others are surprised, to me it is what I deal with daily in practice. I stand my ground and fight, breaking the limitations others have placed on me.

[VIDEO] The UFC’s Totally Honest Hype Trailer for UFC 153: Silva vs. Bonnar

I just watched the first official trailer for UFC 153: Silva vs. Bonnar and I’m stoked, Nation. Not because the brief montage of fight film, music and narration fooled me into thinking that Stephan Bonnar somehow isn’t a gigantic underdog against Anderson Silva, but rather because the trailer is so honest about his chances and what we’re likely to see. It’s a nice change of pace.

Check it out above and see what I mean. After injuries jacked up UFC 153′s main event twice as well as the originally scheduled co-main, the UFC did the best they could by getting the world’s best fighter on the card and throwing a fearless, aggressive, entertaining fighter at him. The trailer serves as a reflection of this, as it basically tell fans, “Look, Anderson Silva is probably going to knock Bonnar out and we all know whenever ‘The Spider’ does that it’s hella exciting. But if somehow that doesn’t happen, and Bonnar wins, well that would be as big of an upset as we’ve ever seen, and dang, wouldn’t that be exciting, too? Please watch us. It’s been a rough year.”
