    One correction: Paul Bradley wrestled at the Univ. of Iowa.

    Whoever gave the list of Pima wrestlers, Jamie Varner wrestled at Pima.

    Sherk wrestled in high school. His bio states he wrestled over 400 matches. The outcomes of those matches are not revealed though.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    I know, I had already mentioned Varner though so I didn't mention him again there. On a side note, Varner is one of my favorite fighters. We knew of each other through mutual friends/enemies for a while, but I didn't meet him until a few months ago. Every time I see him now, he talks to me and yesterday he gave me the handshake/hug like we had been friends for a long time. He's a really good guy, and isn't full of himself one bit like a lot of fighters.

    James Terry, who I guess is fighting out of Cung Le's gym, also wrestled at Pima.

    I guess we can't forget Jesse Taylor, who wrestled at Cal-St Fullerton. Chad Mendes is fighting now too and just won his first fight. Matt Kocher, who wrestled at Pitt and I think was an AA, just won his first fight as well. Kellan Fluckiger, AA Heavyweight for ASU, also is fighting and won on a Bodog show a little while back.
