Rich is the American dream essentially. He wasn't incredibly athletically gifted, hasn't been doing martial arts from the womb and still made it to the highest level of competition through nothing else but hard work. Every young fighter can look up to him and think "Man if I really bust my ass and put my heart into this I can be a champion." Rich above all else has always come to fight, has legendary toughness and Duke Nukem style balls of steel to consider a third Anderson fight. HOF upon retirement, please.
