I was mistaken for a UFC fighter.

Recently my wife and I drove up to a small cafe about 20 miles North of Downtown Nanaimo. We sat in the booth by the window and a man created breakfast music loops on an stratocaster. There was a gentleman chatting with the staff and he was obviously local and a friend of the cafe. He noticed me and mistakenly took me for a fighter named Zane. 

Are you fighting in Vancouver? Are the other guys hereIt’s nice that you can get some time off to relax.”

He asked me about my nemesis X, whose name I do not remember. The man bustled around the restaurant looking for a pen and paper.

I signed the napkin.

To, Gentleman. Don’t take shit from X. Don't take shit from anyone.

That was my day as a UFC fighter in Parksville, B.C. 

This song was Frank’s opener on the tour that I supported him on earlier in the year. If you have seen the music video you know that Frank has taken on a famous fighter. 

Thanks to Frank for this song.
