He was never ever a Vegas cop.
He worked with a Georgia sheriffs department and was gonna become a security guard at the local jails before he made it.
Also losing to A.Silva does not equal losing ones manhood. The guy is the best fighter in MMA right now.
I will agree that he has taking some brutal beatings even in fights he wins. He seems to enjoy pain or not mind it. If you read his book which is a really good read he is a weird man that does things involving pain that just baffles me.
