  • When conducting acquisition planning, manage accessibility risk by requesting and evaluating accessibility information from vendors prior to selection:
    • Determine the applicability of the standards to each item.
    • Identify how the vendor should provide information you need to perform a 508 technical evaluation;
    • Incorporate Section 508 criteria into the evaluation factors; and
    • Add accessibility provisions, clauses, and acceptance criteria, to ensure accessibility support is provided throughout the life of the contract, and to manage your agency's accessibility risk after award.
  • Validate that technology products and services provide full support for accessibility prior to award selection and, where feasible, prior to deployment for custom developed deliverables.
    • Follow the updated testing guidelines, endorsed by the Federal CIO Council, to validate support for the standards for web, software, and electronic document products and services. (Updated)

Olympic gold medalist and four-time world champion in wrestling Jordan Burroughs has long expressed the desire to try mixed martial arts.

What Do You Think Dragonscape 5081

I just want one fight,” he said to ESPN last year. “I just want to throw my hands and see what I’m made of. Wrestlers and fighters have that same fighting spirit.”

However, it never happened. During a recent appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience, Burroughs explained why.

“I’ve been close,” said Burroughs. “Mostly the lady outside, my wife, Lauren is the one who has talked me out of it. When I graduated from college in 2011 wrestling was in its infancy of marketing and branding and really making it a professional career. MMA was the new kid on the block, and it was growing and expanding, and we had a lot of our guys transitioning in. Henry Cejudo, Ben Askren, Daniel Cormier and so I really thought about it. I was like, ‘OK, I’m going to wrestle in the Olympics in London, 2012, win the gold and then I’m going to make the transition to MMA. I’ll be 25 years old. I’ll have plenty of time and then I met Lauren and she was like, ‘Listen, you’re doing well in the sport. Stay here, you are comfortable.’

“I think about going to MMA until I see a guy like ‘Platinum’ Mike Perry get his whole thing split, nose crooked. I’m like ‘Nah I’m good.’ In wrestling, if you lose you get taken down, pushed out, you get pinned. In fighting, you lose you get something broken, choked out, tapped, unconscious. It’s a very different sport, wrestling is scoring as many points as possible with doing the least damage as possible. In MMA I feel like it is different.”

What do you think UG? Burroughs obviously has the physical attributes. But if you are not willing to risk your health, can you still do well?
