    Tomashek is from Green Bay. This was a big deal in Wisconsin at the time. Green Bay is only 30 minutes from my hometown... so it created quite the buzz.

    He was in the audience eating a hot dog and then got a chance to be a replacement fighter.

    That journeyman Tomashek is a tough dude. His eyes were a mess and he still wanted to continue. He must've thought he was at Disneyland. He frustrated Morrison and clowned him a bit before he tasted canvas only to pop back up at 3. Thanks for sharing, Barman. Good stuff!

    @MC Paul Barman what in the holy fuck. If you’re going to go get your head kicked in at least walk out to something absolutely ridiculous. Like a bit of prince maybe?
