Dave became a star witness in an FBI probe of a con man after having a business affiliation with the man. The business association cost him his life savings and retirement income plans. Resorting to becoming a home improvement contractor (after a career in the corporate world), he was working away from home, a week at a time, and staying in an empty house in an unfamiliar neighborhood. One day, after repeated phone calls from collection agencies and lawyers, he gripped the stepladder he was using and thought, Why am I trying so hard? I'll never make this up. I'm washed up financially. I might as well just quit. At that moment, the Holy Spirit reminded him of a sign that was posted at the top of the steps exiting his high school's wrestling room: "Winners never quit, and quitters never win." Dave's story is also interconnected with two others that have been recorded. One is the movie, Donnie Brasco. A movie based on the true story of an FBI sting of the Mob in New York City. This sting led to the incarceration of Dave's business partner, Joe, for money laundering. And the second, a book titled Trafficking: The Boom and Bust of the Air America Cocaine Ring by Berkeley Rice. The story of the man who has the acclaim of being the person who has brought the largest amount of cocaine into the United States by one person. Joe and his picture are actually in this book.

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER Some people are born to be a certain thing. And I was a born fighter. At the age of eight, Michael Bisping began his training in martial arts. By the time he was 15, he was fighting in his first no holds barred competition. When he turned professional and joined the UFC he was sure about one thing: only a world championship title would do. A British underdog in the greatest fighting championship on earth, he spent the next decade winning some of the championship’s most sensational contests to achieve his dream, becoming the first ever British UFC world champion in 2016. From his boyhood years learning to fight in the gyms of Lancashire to his most shocking clashes in the cage, in Quitters Never Win Bisping tells the raw and unfiltered story behind his legendary career for the first time, including his greatest wins, his fiercest rivals and the harrowing injury that forced him into retirement. As audacious, entertaining and as candid as the man himself, it’s a backstage pass to one of the world’s most extreme sports and an unbridled account of what it really takes to become a champion, from sleeping in his own car to reaching the summit of the world’s fastest growing sport.

Due to an injury that curtailed the father’s potential career in the NFL the father lives for one reason: to see to it that ‘at almost any cost’ his son will have a career as a professional football player.
