I was just reading about Abkhazia last week! These disputed territories fascinate me.

It's terrifying how many people think communism is a good idea, my little brother goes to university in Maryland and he was trying to explain to me how one of his teachers was preaching communism and how excellent it is.
When I asked my brother about the atrocities across history and the ones happening in modern day his response was his teacher told him communism isnt the worst because Hitler wasn't communist.
My head hurt too much after that one but living in Saskatchewan with TONS of Mennonites who lived through or parents lived through Red October you can get some heated arguments with the idiot youth that try to preach the glory of communism.
But good for Jeff, he seems to love it over there and clearly has some connections that better benefit him.
I have a close friend who left Russia for Ukraine because of the violence in the area he lived in and I couldn't imagine a life in Russia after hearing the first hand experiences my friend has had.
I'd love to visit certain areas for their historical significance and I've never associated modern Russia with Stalin era Russia but I could never ever imagine myself compelled enough to get citizenship there.
Power to Jeff though, I'd love to see him in some grappling competitions I think with bellator setting the stage for aged veteran showswe should get some aged veteran grappling events.
Monson, Barnett, fedor, couture, sakuraba, Mir, Nelson, Gracie, both shamrock, bas if his body can hold up, big nog and the list goes on.
Could do a lighter weight one too, it'd be fun and less cringe inducing cause we won't have to worry about as much brain damage.
