“Oleg, are you f***ing chumming for Goddam sharks?! You’re putting the whole class at risk of shark attack right now,” said Instructor Deek Gammin.

Gammin was a skinny stone-cold killer from Hollywood, Florida, or “Hollyweird” as the other instructors reminded him daily.

He was your typical mullet hairdo, gator-stompin, half shirt-wearing, Florida redneck who found direction in the steel cage as a troubled teen.

That cage was the UFC octagon. He was a rising welterweight MMA star and then, all of a sudden, after an MMA friend gave him a copy of, The Red Circle, which he listened to on audio as he trained, he read everything he could get his hands on about the SEALs. Then one day he found religion and said to hell with it, walked to the town strip mall where the local Navy recruitment office was, and signed up to become a SEAL.
