Titties is going to war

Reading the newspapers or watching the news, you’d never really know there was even a war going on, let alone two. But one person who just got reminded is Darill ‘Titties’ Schoonover, who just got word that he’s being clawed back into the army (read the fine print on those recruitment forms, people) and shipped to Afghanistan after his TUF finale fight on December 5th:

“At first I was kind of pissed,” he said. “I was like, ‘I’ve already served my country for four years and been out for almost two years.’ I’m getting my fighting started and getting the ball rolling on that. I was kind of mad, but the very next day, I just accepted it. I’ll do what I gotta do, and then I’ll come back and work on my fighting.”

Schoonover added that he will have to serve a 400-day stint, and that he hopes to use the time to lose weight, which may make possible a move down to the light-heavyweight division.

You can infer from his reaction that he didn’t win the whole season of TUF, which is too bad because as much as I like Marcus Jones, I would have loved to see Titties knock Rampage’s last fighter standing out of the competition. Still, as if being on the Ultimate Fighter and having a shot of getting into the UFC wasn’t a good enough excuse to get in shape, he’s now got the military to help him get fighting fit (or blown to shit, let’s all really hope for the former). He can definitely do it … check out this old picture of Schoonover sans breasts.
