January 11, 2018 marks 5 years since MZ took his own life, and UFC232 2018 was year 1 of forcing myself to get through it in the cage. I know I didn’t get the result I’d worked for, but I did successfully survive the historically almost unsurvivable months of December/beginning of January and to me and my world, that’s serious progress. I was ready, I dug deep, I felt as good as possible, I had both shit days and days that were stunningly impressive. I needed to come out the other side and I stand proud knowing this was one of the hardest camps I’ll ever have made it through and can now put the fear of what it’d be like behind me. I know there’s more road to walk on working through my trauma, but this was a big deal to me and I appreciate the care and inspiration. Thanks for your part. In honor, please do something to help someone today.
