Moffat County Neighbor: Richard Large


— Age: 25

Occupation: Ranch hand and cage-fighter

When did you move to Moffat County and what brought you here?

I moved here in May last year from Las Vegas so that I could work on my training for mixed martial arts full time.

Describe your morning routine.

Wake up, run a couple miles, take my supplements, feed the animals and work out.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I always wanted to be a Marine.

Have you ever had a book change your life? What book and why?

"The Purpose-Driven Life," because after I got out of the Marines, it enlightened me to other avenues and helped me settle down.

If you could invite any four people to dinner, who would they be and what would you serve?

My uncle - and hero - Ray Birch, Cpl. George Payton and Sgt. Jeffrey Kirk, and my dad, because he taught me how to be a man. I'd serve them steak, something green and iced tea. Very clean, no junk food.

What are three things you can't live without?

My family, peace of mind and my mixed martial arts training.

What's the worst reason you have ever given or received for breaking up with somebody?

"It's not you, it's me" is pretty bad

If you had to give up one of your five senses, what would it be?

Taste, because I can eat anything, anyway.

What band or performer would you stand in line to get tickets for?

Sublime, even though they're not around anymore.
