That one there, I had been in Morocco in training campand I was only listening.
Obviously lots of the time people say stuff about me personally, but it is alright, no problem. For a reason that day he just said something that really got to me and that I thoughtyou know what, I think Id beat him, and I set it out there and it was pandemonium.
I did not know what I was expecting, but that one was one where maybe I should have sent a direct message, instead of putting it out there. But all is fair in love and war
