    Monson has twice won the prestigious Abu Dhabi world submission grappling title and got his nickname there. After working his way through four Brazilians in a row at the'99 event, the Brazilians dubbed him snowball because of his momentum. Somehow that ended up as The Snowman.

    Funny, I guess haha

    he does look like he belongs with the aryan brotherhood but from his interviews, he has pretty radical political views but it seems like he's far from being a racist.. did he really have a swastika or are you just pulling this out of your ass?
