    We sat down with Pat and asked him to answer a few questions and here is what he had to say:
    1. WHEN DID YOU START TRAINING IN MARTIAL ARTS?
    I STARTED TRAINING WHEN I WAS 23. BUT I’VE BEEN SECRETLY INTO MARTIAL ARTS MY ENTIRE LIFE, WITH HEROES LIKE VAN DAMME AND THE NINJA TURTLES! AND NO MATTER WHAT I GOT MY HANDS DIRTY WITH, I WASN’T GOING TO SETTLE FOR BEING LESS THAN THE ABSOLUTE BEST. AND JUST AS I AM NOW, I’VE ALWAYS BEEN READY AND WILLING TO FIGHT MY WAY TO THE TOP, BE IT METAPHORICALLY OR LITERALY. THERE’S NO AVOIDANCE OF GREATNESS WHEN ITS DESTINED.
    2. HOW DO YOU SEE YOURSELF STACK UP AGAINST THE TOP GUYS IN THE UFC?
    I DEFINITELY HAVE SOMETHING TO OFFER. A DIFFERENT STYLE, LOOK AND ABILITY. SOMETHING NEW! THERE’S NOT ENOUGH ROOM FOR EVERY ONE AT THE TOP, THOUGH. IF I’M BEING MEASURED UP WITH THOSE CHOSEN FEW, THEN SOMEONE MUST KNOW I’M COMING! SOMEONE’S ANXIOUS AND / OR WORRIED. I’M GOING TO EMPTY OUT ALL THOSE “TOP” SPOTS. GIMMEE!
    3. YOU HAVE YOUR FIRST FIGHT INNTHE UFC ON DEC 27th AGAINST DAN EVENSON, HOW DO YOU SEE THAT GOING?
    I’M NOT A WRESTLER OR A GRAPPLER. I’M A DEVASTATING STRIKER! MY PUNCHES FEEL LIKE KICKS. MY KICKS END CAREERS! I INFLICT MAJOR DAMAGE AND WILL GIVE YOU NIGHTMARES. AND IT’S A FIGHT SHOW, SO IM GONNA SHOW THE FANS SOMETHING THEY HAVEN’T SEEN IN THE HEAVY WEIGHT DIVISION IN A LONG TIME! ‘CAUSE WE GOTTA KEEP THEM HAPPY. WITHOUT THE FANS WE WOULDN’T EXIST. I’M A CHAMPION. IF ANY COMPETITOR DOESN’T SEE HIMSELF AS THE VICTOR, THEN HE NEED NOT COMPETE. HE SHOULD NEVER STEP ONTO THAT PLATFORM. WE CAN NEVER PREDICT THE FUTURE, BUT I LITERALLY GIVE MY ALL, MIND BODY AND SOUL, SO I NEVER LOSE. THATS HD! IF YOU STAY READY, YOU AINT GOT TO GET READY!
    4. AFTER WATCHING RANDY GO AGAINST BROCK WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE DIFFERENTLY?
    PERSONALLY, I WOULD NEVER TRY TO WRESTLE WITH MR. LESNAR. BUT THATS ME. I WOULD HAVE SNIPED HIM FROM THE OUTSIDE!
    5. WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF YOUR DOG TAGS?
    DAD DIED WHEN I WAS 6 YEARS OLD. SOME YEARS LATER OUR GRANDMOTHER GAVE MY BROTHER, DREW, AND ME OUR DAD’S DOG TAGS. WE WERE TEENS THEN AND BEGAN WEARING THESE EVERY DAY. TWELVE YEARS WENT BY AND ONE DAY, ON OUR FIRST ROAD TRIP ACROSS THE COUNTRY WITH OUR COUSIN, RAWN, DREWS DOG TAG BROKE OFF OF HIS NECK AND WAS LOST FOREVER ON THE BEACH IN SAN DIEGO. WE DESPERATELY SEARCHED FOR IT. AFTER AN HOUR WE HEARD DREW SAY “WELP” AND WATCHED HIM WALK OFF. WE FOLLOWED QUIETLY. HE WALKED STRAIGHT INTO A TATOO SHOP AND GOT THE TAG WITH ALL THE INFORMATION TATTOOD AROUND HIS NECK! “HYPEorDIE” STARTED RIGHT THERE!
    6. HOW DID YOU END UP WITH DUKE ROUFUS?
    I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE THE BEST. SO, TO BE THE BEST, YOU’VE GOT TO TRAIN WITH THE BEST. AND ZEUS ROUFUS IS THE BEST!
    7. YOUR FAMILY WAS A VICTIM OF HURRICANE KATRINA, HOW DID THAT EFFECT THINGS FOR YOU?

    KATRINA EXEMPLIFIED THE FACT THAT NOTHING LASTS FOREVER AND THAT YOU CAN ONE DAY HAVE IT ALL AND THEN LOSE IT ALL TOO FAST. TAKE PRECAUTIONS IN EVERYTHING, ALWAYS HAVE BACKUPS, AND BE ABLE TO ADAPT IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE! CAUSE LIFE EVENTS ARE UNPREDICTABLE. DON’T TAKE THINGS FOR GRANTED.
    8. SOME PEOPLE SAY YOU MIGHT BE THE BEST HEAVYWEIGHT STRIKER IN THE UFC, WHAT DO YOU SAY ABOUT THAT?
    I’D AGREE AND SAY THANK YOU FOR NOTICING. AND IN AN ATTEMPT TO NOT BE CONCEITED I’D SAY I’LL BE SURE TO PROVIDE EVIDENCE THAT’LL PROVE THEIR WORDS RIGHT. I’M A PURE STRIKER. I HIT HARD AND RARELY MISS.
    9. IS THE UFC READY FOR YOU?
    MAAAN, WERE CUCUMBERS READY TO BE PICKLED? NAHHH! BUT GUESS WHAT. PICKLES ARE DELICIOUS!!! BUT SERIOUSLY, THE UFC IS READY AND HAS BEEN WAITING. I HEARD JO ROGAN SAY ONCE THAT “WE HAVE YET TO SEE AN ELITE-LEVEL STRIKER IN THE OCTAGON”. WELL HERE I COME!

    I am excited for his fight, but I think he will drop to LHW soon even if he KOs his first few opponents or not

    I'd like to see him fight Kongo before he drops down

    I think it will be a little tough, but it is kind of crazy considering he is shorter than most middleweights and with guys like Lesnar in the division, he is gonna have to have an incredible skillset to make up for the size differences

    Damn, I'm surprised GG could still walk.

    Should be exciting, although he'd have more success at 205.

    as thin as the HW division is, I think most people right now, shorter or not, would fair plenty well at HW.

    that could be said for any weight class. 235 is not that small and guys shorter than him have done fine (Hunt).

    Hunt is like 285 though, makes him trickier to take down.

    Pure strikers need a good sprawl more so than other styles (like crocop, before the suck).

    I hope this fight is quick and brutal so we can see it on the PPV.

    the HW division needs someone exciting, hopefully he'll help, i have a feeling he will be a HW version of Alan Belcher.

    He seems to be more renowned for his legkicks, and doesn't look like he has KO power in his hands.

    I think he could be like the heavyweight version of Antoni Hardonk

    Oh, wait...

    Sadly, CroCop was well past his prime and aged quite a bit by the time he got to UFC. :hs:

    A short guy whos main weapon appears to be high kicks and has a questionable ground game, I cant see how this could end badly.

    PERSONALLY, I WOULD NEVER TRY TO WRESTLE WITH MR. LESNAR. BUT THATS ME. I WOULD HAVE SNIPED HIM FROM THE OUTSIDE!

    How do you snipe a guy when you have to be about 4 inches away from them to land a punch?

    It's not really about him taking the wrestling TO Lesnar, but defending the take downs and keeping it standing. My bet would be on Lesnar taking him down within 10 seconds of the fight a turning his face into ground beef.

    He'll be an exciting explosive striker for a boring HW division though.
