When Cody Bollinger was finished training and preparing for his first professional MMA fight in the U.S., there was one last detail to set up: He needed a ride.
Just 15 years old at the time, Bollinger was beginning an MMA career that followed plenty of gym time since beginning tae kwon do workouts at age 3. So, he couldn't drive himself.
"My dad took me," Bollinger told MMAjunkie.com with a laugh. "He went to the weigh-ins, stayed in the hotel, helped me do everything I needed to do."
