Thanks for this. Forget if I mentioned I'm going to the fight (already have ticket). Last year one of my students was a girl (here in CO) whose family is lifelong friends with Mike's. I'm excited, though I hope they don't need an ambulance with bunk beds for this one! :(

Now Provod has been talking that foolish jive that he is ready to die in the ring. The late, great General "Blood and Guts" would cuss out weak-talking warriors like Provod. He'd tell him to "kill da otha' bastard." Thinking about dying in a fight has brainwashed you to accepting losing. And that loss is so bad, that you rather be dead. Holla!
