Or, he is about to become the first already famous serial killer. Just inviting over fans and then they are never heard from again. Okay, maybe that's a stretch, I grant you because nobody who plays for Reading could be considered famous.

Jones vs. Cormier Media Turns Into Brawl, Not A Staged One, A Break The Stage One- MMA Fighting

I just stuck 60 bucks in an old coffee can (because I don't trust banks) so I know I have money allocated to hand to Dana White for this fight. Please, pretty please Daniel, take this junior college half-a-wrestler and just KO him with five point throw after five point throw.
