Curtis Blaydes fights his way from South Side to top of UFC


As Curtis 'Razor' Blaydes cut down Alistair Overeem Saturday at United Center, Curtis Blaydes Sr. couldn't watch.

"If you think about it, that could have been him getting those elbows."

Despite serving as a Chicago Police Officer for the last 21 years, 'Big Curt' doesn't have the stomach for his son's profession. He also didn't understand it when his son took up a sport he'd never heard of.

"It's like a one in a million chance I was thinking."

"Originally, he was trying hard to get me to be a police officer also," explained Blaydes. "I kind of 'forgot' twice to take the police exam."
