DMITRIY SHAKHNEVICH is a NYC lawyer. "I always loved the fights. Unfortunately for me, in middle school, I realized that I wasn’t winning any of the fights I was involved in. So I avoided them and made the smart decision of going to law school, and doing my fighting in the courtroom. So that’s what I do now. Nonetheless, my interest in combat sports persisted. Now, I sit down with some of the most compelling figures in combat sports and the law, to hear their stories and opinions on some of the most pressing issues facing their respective worlds."
