    I'm pretty sure I'm going to be fighting John David Shackelford May 9th. You guys will know him as the guy with Herpes from TUF that didn't get to fight.

    He just called me and said people keep backing out on him and asked if I would be willing to fight him on short notice. The promoter is gonna call me tomorrow and I should be able to talk them out of $800 to fight and $200 to win considering hes going to beat me into a puddle of goo.

    Hes a training partner of mine, we both share the same instructor out of Memphis but he has his own school now.

    Randleman KOed Cro Cop, I CAN DO THIS :mamoru:

    http://sherdog.com/fighter/John-Shackelford-4572

    His record doesn't do him justice. The guys hes lost to are Hazlett, Palaszewki(in the IFL) and Edson Berto(In Elite XC). Couldn't ask to fight a nicer guy though.

    Hes a solid brown in BJJ.

    Sounds like you're just trying to do the guy a favor. I mean, it sucks to have the world be told you are sporting herpes but is it really worth it for you?

    Think about it.

    Fuck that man! If you're willing to risk the herps you better get a fuck of a lot more than $800.

    You must have some self image issues to be willing to 1) fight someone with the herp 2) do it for so cheap.

    Very true, but his is likely a different type, being oral or genital. Where the other dude has "Wrestlers Herpes"

    Yes, because my 1-1 record is so deserving of that.

    Vulger can't even get 2k and hes 20x's the fighter I am.

    Tim needs a car payment and I'm doing a friend a favor. I'm just going to get creamed in the process.

    lol @ getting herpes is doing a friend a favor.

    Doing them a favor is bailing them out of jail and letting them pay you back later. Letting them give you herpes is not.

    In a situation like that your record means nothing. You're doin him the favor not vice versa.

    It's no different from cold sores. If he isn't having an outbreak then it isn't contagious. It's the same virus.

    I'm not going to be catching it :squint:

    And with my new job I can take this money and pay off my credit card, w000

    Things are looking up.
