I had to end it off with Stockton's hometown hero this was put up after he beat Conner McGraggor in a U.F.C. match and Stockton was put on the map. After this was put up that’s all people talked about and brought so much happiness and pride to the people of Stockton and everyone celebrated and were happy just to see one of their own had made it from this dark and negativity of a place.
