Dave broke his jaw in his last fight. It was a hard loss but there are way more sacrifices fighters take in order to entertain the masses. One of which is financial debt.
Below is a video of Dave talking about his injury and the non-glamorous part of being a professional fighter.

His surgery is going to put him in debt. Ideally in a perfect world it would be great for everyone to have insurance but that also costs a lot of money and in order to make a lot of money he have to take away from training. But with anything... No risk no reward. He wants compete with UFC fighters and that means train like one he uses that extra time to train, eat, and sleep like a professional fighter.
I am posting this "go fund me" page for my page because I cant think of someone more deserving. For work, Dave is a personal trainer and works at a non-profit "Never Give Up" coaching young kids with troubled backgrounds teaching them to supplement excercise and sports for a healthy outlet. On top of that Dave is always the one to volunteer to give a helping hand, whether its helping a fighter cut weight, wrap someones hands, be a corner or help prepare them for a fight.
Overall Dave is an extremely hard worker and is doing everything in his power to chase his dream of being a professional fighter and hopefully someday training and fighting can be his full time job. However Unfortionately when it comes to reality this injury and loss will set him back a few steps back, but knowing Dave he will do what he does best and that is GRIND.
Thank you for all the love and support to getting this PAIN TRAIN back on his tracks!!
