Besides his love for Kenny Florian elbows, Anthony Pettis liver kicks and Urijah Faber guillotines, Dan is also a bona fide sports junkie who breathes Fantasy Baseball and New York Giants football. Chalk that one up to his native city of New York.
As a self-proclaimed MMA enthusiast hailing from the University of Tennessee, Dan aims to fuse his love for head kicks and uppercuts with a life-long passion for writing.
He's attended memorable UFC events such as: UFC 169: Barao vs. Faber II; UFC on Fuel TV: Korean Zombie vs. Poirier; UFC on FX: Browne vs. Bigfoot; UFC on FX: Maynard vs. Guida.

I always confuse you for GSP when I see your avatar-sized pic.

Here's the article -
Update time :
Dan, I have no argument with dropping Florian (2 doctors have advised him to retire)... however, Carwin is a tough call, because he BELIEVES he is returning to the Octagon.
Regardless, it is unlikely that Carwin makes it back in time for the end of this league (December 31st 2012), so I have to honor that transaction as well.
I will remove Florian & Carwin from your team and add Alan Belcher & Hector Lombard (FYI - Lavar is actually taken already)
Update for March (little late - been busy) -
Yo Danny - stats are updated... also, everyone seems to be forgetting about the one add / drop at the end of each month, so if you can get me your move by tomorrow (Feb 2nd Midnight), I'll allow it. Here's the updated article :
Hey Pippi Longstockings, everyone is allowed one add/drop at the end of each month - so let me know by midnight 12/31/11 if you would like one
Thanks for becoming a fan Dan. Not sure why after disagreement with the article (though all points made were logical and I like logical criticisms) but I appreciate it.
