(April 3, 1977- )
Born in West Linn, Oregon
Fights in the UFC and has also fought in Bodog and World Extreme Cagefighting
Why he might be annoying
Following his near-victory against Anderson Silva at UFC 117, an instant rematch was delayed due to the fact he tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs following the fight.
He is known for throwing out blatant lies about himself and his opponents.
In one such instance, he denied saying certain damaging things on Twitter even though the evidence was right there. Thanks in part to this, he had to drop out of a race for an Oregon House seat.
He has also made other questionable statements. On one video he said, 'BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) is gay, I won't lay spread eagle with a man between my legs on national TV, I'm a Republican, we don't do that.' Plus, on the topic of women in MMA, he said, 'They should be in the kitchen, not in the cage.'
He lost out on the middleweight title in World Extreme Cagefighting because his opponent did not make the required weight prior to the fight.
Why he might not be annoying
In almost defeating Anderson Silva at UFC 117, he dominated the fight against the seemingly undefeatable Silva (who as it turned out was suffering from a rib injury) until a mistake in the final round caused him to submit to a triangle armbar.
He has a sociology degree from the University of Oregon.
While wrestling at the University of Oregon, he won two national titles.
He has a day job as a realtor.
He was an alternate for the U.S. Olympic team in greco-roman wrestling.
