“I enjoyed my time in OVW,” he said. “My trainer was Trailer Park Thrash or better known as Frank Miller. That was my guy right there him and Al Snow I learned a lot from. There were good people there who helped me out. Training was hard. I took a lot of bumps. Actually it’s more painful than it is MMA.”

“I just want a fight,” he said.
