    R.I.P even though I never saw any of his stuff it’s still pretty sad to hear that anyone from the sport i love to have passed on. I still respect anyone in the business.

    I was just showing my husband a youtube vid of Savannah Jack last week. It was his match against Buddy Roberts where Jack won the UWF television title. Not sure why he didn’t make it bigger in the sport.
