|Introduction||"The full scope of John Perretti's talents and abilities is known to very few, and can be truly appreciated by even fewer. As a fighter, he was cunning, ruthless and impervious to pain and defeat. As a human being, he is sensitive, brilliant, resourceful and brutally honest. If you could combine Da Vinci, Bruce Lee and Budda, that would make up John Perretti." Dr. Alex Eingorn "John Perretti has the energy of a top predator,can be gentle as a mother Gorilla, yet when he holds your eye, can make you nervous. A man driven to excel. I know no other with the connection to the body, self and spirit like his, yet humble." Dennis Haussler "There has never been more accomplished by an individual in one life time." Dr. Kevin White The first person in the combat sports to coin the term, "Mixed Martial Arts" Named "The Maestro" by journalist Eddie Goldman "John is an anathema." Scott Ross "John defines the concept of Renaissance man." Tom Magee|
