    He's known for his flying knee in his Bellator debut if you haven't heard about him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VirSoFoCUYE

    He can develop software when hes 60, but his punching people in the face effectively time is limited.

    I respect his chasing down a young mans dream, but TBH its a massive gamble that the lost income and retirement funds will be matched by prize fighting.

    Why do you say that? On his ig stories he is always coding and has built his own apps. I'm sure he's capable of getting a job offer.
    Why would he go out of his way to lie lol?

    Yeah I’m sure.... “did the interview for chits and giggles”

    Dude is lying. He was probably offered some low-level job in the company and heard second hand that there are people in the department making a quarter million. He wasn’t going to be one of them.

    How much attention does this guy need?

    If youre the type of person who automatically chooses a money project over a passion project youre probably a very boring person.
    A non-physical job can wait also. Not like he has a wife and kids so as long as you have a room and food you should chase high risk high reward passions.

    Passion always beats money in happiness, the only problem is that in 2020, you need money to feel happiness, hence go for the money. Last thing you want is a long list of medical bills, brain trauma, and with nothing to show for it. If I were him, I’d give mma a shot but if there is no clear path to success (title), immediately give it up because if you aren’t a draw or top dog in cage fighting, you go nothing to look for except potential brain damage.

    I always remember Tito Ortiz saying he will train his kids only after they earn a masters degree. Take it from the veteran.

    Social media is not representative of a person's life. It's also not hard to build apps in today's information world. Think about it, why can't he do his 9-5 and then train outside of that? Stipe Miocic and Demetrius Johnson both became champions and they worked actual manual labor jobs. This guy is just a regular nobody. As for why he would do that, who knows but it's easy for him to provide proof by showing the offer letter and his name
