UFC Quick Quote: Terry Martin has a crazy story

"I was a juvenile delinquent. I was in and out of jail since I was 10 years old for stuff like battery and mob action. Most of my problems were gang-related. And I was shot five times .... I knew I wasn't going anywhere like that, so I started taking school more seriously and stayed away from the negative people after that. It changed my life."

-- UFC middleweight Terry Martin talks about his troubled childhood, education and upcoming bout with Ivan Salaverry at UFC 71 in a recent feature in the Chicago Sun-Times.
