At the UFC Fan Expo, I lucked out after talking with the dudes from the Matt Hamill bio-pic, "Hamill" (which you can check out in the UFC Expo vid), and I was able to get on board the TapouT bus and talk to the man himself, "Punkass" AKA Dan Caldwell. Punkass is the president of the international brand that includes apparel, gear, energy drinks, movies and more!
Since this interview happened at the expo, we do not speak about the current buy-out that just occured, but Punkass gives us a ton of insight on the business side of MMA, as well as tips for newcomers to the financial side of it and what he thinks are the keys to succeed and thrive like TapouT has.
