Mike Richman took a big chance in late 2007.
Back then, he had a good career going as a Marine sergeant. He enjoyed being in the Corps, and with his four-year enlistment up in a few months, he could see himself becoming a drill instructor and a Marine lifer.
But Richman also dreamed of being a professional mixed martial artist. And despite having never fought in an amateur match and having almost no formal MMA training beyond what he’d learned in the Corps , he was confident he had the talent and toughness to make it. So, to the amazement of some of his fellow infantrymen, he left the Corps and returned home to Minnesota.
