I’m an absolute beast, scientific fact. I’m taking part in the Brawl to rid myself of this unfounded ‘Glassjaw’ nickname. Beating Moroney will also help fuel the fire of me now playing for Rock! I’m also thinking of doing something for the kids that will enhance my profile with the ladies - although I’m pretty much the Adonis already. On a serious note though taking part in this event is my way of doing something to help the beast work that Jenko and all the Umbrella team are doing over in Nepal. It’s a really worthwhile cause and I’m just happy I can help. (But bottom line is that Moroney is going down - I’m a baller, play on playar !!)

(He thinks he is better than us,) “I can’t tell you how the fight is going to go but all I know is, Im gonna try give the crowd a show and leave it all in the ring”
