At 6'5" and 250 pounds, Walt "The Big Ticket" Harris isn't exactly the poster child for victims of bullying.

"I wasn't always this big," he said. "I was always tall, but I was about 150 pounds. I was really skinny. I would get bullied a lot."

And Harris, who is a professional MMA fighter, isn't exactly who you might think of to talk out against bullying.

"There's always a way to get to a solution without violence," he said.

"With you being small and having the right mindset, you can always protect yourself," Harris said. "It doesn't mean you have to resort to violence. You can have a defensive mindset and talk your way out of situations in a positive manner."

Harris knows it's a tall order, but says if people work together, he knows bullying can be knocked out.

"It's better to speak and talk through problems then to act out and that's what I want to tell the kids," he said.
