What’s the best part about Tuesdays? That would be the Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, of course. In case it doesn’t ring a bell, it’s an entertaining program hosted by UFC Fight Pass featuring retired mixed martial artist Urijah Faber and your favorite pothead Snoop Dogg. During the show, the duo takes turns sharing commentary on the game. As you can imagine, it’s a lot of fun. But it turns out that UFC fighters aren’t fans of the Doggfather’s unfiltered comments. And so they want him out.
When and why did you start training for fighting? I moved away from Michigan when I was 24 in pursuit of finding happiness and finding myself. What I found was an opportunity to keep competing after college wrestling and to put some extra change in my pocket. I always liked being in the spotlight as an athlete. What can I say? I'm a glory hound. After my second pro fight, I quit my day job and decided to give my life a fighting chance. I barely made ends meet by personal training and teaching self defense, but that's what I needed to do to keep my face in the gym 24/7. If you want something bad enough, you have to fight for it. For the first time in my life, things made sense. I'd just get up, train early & hard and lay some hands down to pay the bills. It made it feel like I earned my way doing what "I" wanted to do. I finally found my niche. Mixed Martial Arts as a whole has allowed me to express myself through movement and self-sacrifice. All or Nothing.
