    1. The Chicken from Family Guy - He really taught me about determination and not quitting when you're behind on points, just keep moving your hips out and try to improve your position.

    2. Jake the Snake Roberts - He taught me that innovation is the key and to be a truely good grappler you must come up with your own moves. The DDT was some of his finest work. Not to mention he helped me when trying to squeeze that last extra bit out of my body via supplementation.

    3. Chris Benoit - Chris taught me some of the finer details on finishing. His mentality of "cranking" it on really showed me that unless you're really prepared to finish your submissions on your opponents, your game will never be tight enough.

    4. Rocco Siffredi - Rocco taught me that the choke part of the game is the most vital. Opponents can have varying flexibilty in different joints and tendons, so cutting off an opponents air/blood supply is the way forward.

    5. Zangief from Streetfighter - As one of Fedor Emelianenkos Ancesters, I think he really pioneered the incorporation of takedowns and judo throws into my game. He also taught me one of my "money" moves, 'Spinning Pile Driver' 360 motion on d-pad+p (close to opponent).

    I've only got it to three.

    Karl Tanswell, my coach for the last 6 1/2 years.

    Matt Thornton, his coach and the guy who pretty much developed the way we train in SBG.

    Gunnar Nelson, 21 year old BJJ prodigy - the few months we spent together gave me a totally new outlook on jiu-jitsu.

    He's only 21??!!! Shit. I've heard people - who've seen a lot of people - call him the best they've ever seen.

    Travelling the world training Jiu Jitsu and living with Renzo is what I've heard about him.

    Both are correct. The guy is a legit phenom.

    Did you know he beat Macaco in a no-gi match late last year? Macaco didn't even score a point on him, and Gunni only decided to enter the tourney on a whim cos some of the other guys from Renzo's went down.
