In his own words from UG:
Wow. Just got home and had time to log in. Can't thank you all enough for the support, kind words, and congrats.

I am glad to have done the fight, and want to thank a whole bunch of people for helping to make it possible. I don't want to fill up too much space on here boring people, but thanks to everyone who had anything to do w/helping me out. Hopefully I have thanked you all in person by now.

The fight was interesting. Didn't go exactly like I wanted it to, but then again, I think they seldom ever do. I felt very uncomfortable on my feet, and that is where I almost always feel best in the gym. Mr. Fletcher had an unusual style and I never got into a rythym. I apologized for the groin kick, and do so again. He kind of hopped up as I threw a kick I intended for his lower abdomin and I caught him square in the cup. Sucks and I feel like [censored] about that.

On the ground I felt great. Never was in danger. It was kind of funny. I don't know what he knocked me down w/or if I slipped as I was getting hit or what. I remember all of a sudden being on the ground and thinking "[censored], how the hell did that happen? Guess I better get in gear and do something about this". His guillotine was locked in but my position on top prevented it fr being any danger. I tried to keep him pinned to the fence, keep pressure down on him, and get him to burn his arms out trying to work the guillotine. Got the standup and hit him w/some leg kicks. Ended up in an awkward clinch and managed to sweep him and get top position and got him to tap fr the strikes.

Mr. Fletcher is a good guy and I thank him for taking the fight. I wish him well for the future.

Although I was thrilled to get the W, I wanted to look a bit better doing it. I guess fighting once every 15 1/2 yrs isn't the way to look sharp. If I do it again, I will try to execute better. I did feel outstanding physically. I wasn't even close to being tired or gassed, and felt strong for the weight. I weighed in @ 159 w/o any real difficulty, so if I do another one that isn't catch weight, I would do 155.

It was an honor and privelege to fight for Brock and Rory. Appreciate them a lot. Also, thanks to the MN Combative Sports Comm. for licensing me. I know they took some heat for it.

Sorry for the long post, and thanks again.

Respectfully:

Fred

A more in depth story of Fred. I've known him for 30 years and didn't know some of this.

Video on Fred from History of the MMA
"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."Teddy Roosevelt
