“I don’t deserve it, but I’m gonna go throw down 100%. I can’t wait, I’m so fired up!! But I owe this all to the fans and support I had from the community who pushed to get me there this year. You all are amazing, I thank each and every one of you. Let’s get some!!” -- Ben Smith to the Morning Chalk Up
