Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

'T-shirt guy' Atencio is also a winner at Ultimate Chaos

After losing the first round badly, Tom Atencio (in the black shorts), the man in charge of Affliction Clothing Company's fight promotion, came back to win by technical knockout as his opponent, Randy Hedderick could not come back for the third round. After his win, Atencio pointed his vitriol at his archnemesis, UFC president Dana White.

"Screw Dana White for what he said about you," Atencio said to his opponent, who Dana White dismissed as a weak fighter. "It's not the critic who counts. Win, lose or draw, at least they had the balls to step in here."

In the first round, Atencio was knocked down and ate several punches and knees from Hadderick. However, Atencio showed a tough chin and continued to fight. Atencio looked strong to start the second, and showed excellent Muay Thai to cause Hedderick to bleed. Hedderick told his corner he could not continue, and the fight was stopped.

Atencio, who has one previous professional fight, is 42 years old and said he doubts he will fight again after "Ultimate Chaos." However, I have no doubt that he would enter the cage for a matchup with a certain former boxing coach from Boston.
