So that’s going to be my journey. I’m glad to everyone who supported back home and everybody who assisted me to get here, all the guys at Team Alpha Male who helped.

” It doesn’t matter who they are, they all fall the exact same way,” he stated. “Just put ’em in front of me and I’ll break ’em. It’s the way it goes. I’m better whenever, so find someone new, dig them out and, if they believe they can come for me, put them in front of me and I’ll behead someone new.”

” I always seek to perform,” he stated. “I constantly look to put a fight of the night efficiency on. My battles are always exciting and I constantly concern impress the crowd or impress the audience back home. Put me in front of whoever you desire. I’ll show I’m better. I increase to difficulties. Discover me a brand-new one and I’ll increase to that.”
