On this weeks episode of Open Mat Radio, “Like a Bas,” we have the one and only Bas Rutten on the show.

“I will wake up my wife, this happened at least 6 times, in the middle of the night because I would dream a submission. I would wake her up and do it on her and then I would write it down.”

“Fighting is about who’s the toughest guy, who’s got the biggest cojones and who’s the guy that puts everything together.”

“If you’re a great striker or a good striker when you come in, I change you in 15 minutes.”

“People lose at a certain weight class and they never blame it on themselves and technique if they get caught because they blame it on the opponent because he was stronger and he cut more weight.”
