Mitch vs. Chuck Norris?

If you're looking for an anecdote to explain how the new face of MMA differs from the stereotype, consider this: Mitch Kerr had to miss our training photo shoot in order to take the CEO of Home Depot out to dinner.
Kerr, a suit-and-tie guy by day, took a well-traveled path to the world of MMA — he ran out of other challenges. "A couple years out of school I got into triathlons, and then did an Ironman in 2004," he says. "Then I needed something to do."
With endurance sports conquered, he stumbled onto MMA, and soon he was training five days a week. He'll never be a pro fighter — "It doesn't pay as well as my other job" — but he's not getting away from it, either. "I love running a mutual fund and the benefits are great," he says. "But long-term, I'd love to be a 60-year-old guy with a black belt teaching classes somewhere."

There's nothing this guy can't do. He should become Iron Man--industry tycoon and premiere athlete combined.

When the Boogie man goes to bed at night, he checks his closet for Mitch Kerr.

Fool Mitch once, shame on you. Fool Mitch twice, and he will roundhouse you in the face.
