Chad May is a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu purple belt and one of the best lightweight fighters in our amateur cage fighting scene.  But that didn't stop us from talking for ten minutes straight about rap music.  Eventually, we got around to fighting though.   Last summer, he was dealt his first loss in a split decision 5 round title fight in the Conflict Promotions Cage in Charleston, SC.  We go into his background, his motivation, and his next fight in a heavier weight class.
