Aaron Brink (born November 12, 1974), also known by his stage name Dick Delaware, is an American professional mixed martial artist and pornographic actor who competes in the Light Heavyweight division. He has competed for King of the Cage, RINGS, UFC and World Extreme Cagefighting.

Brink has made several mainstream appearances, including episodes of Intervention and Divorce Court. He portrayed Electro in Spider-Man XXX: A Porn Parody (2011). In 2019, Brink returned to the adult industry after a five-year hiatus.

Early life[edit]

Aaron Brink was born on November 12, 1974 in Newport Beach, California.[1] Raised by his blue-collar father in Huntington Beach, he developed passions for wrestling and surfing.[2] Brink attended Huntington High before being expelled for fighting.[2] From 1989-92, he was in and out juvenile detention centers on eight different occasions.[2]

Brink was arrested and sentenced to serve time for smuggling marijuana from Mexico into the United States.[2] While at the Federal Correctional Institution, Terminal Island Brink spent his days training to fight on a heavy bag.[2] He was released at the age of 24.[2]

Career[edit]

After being released from prison, Brink connected with an old friend who encouraged him to enter MMA.[2] He made his debut at the West Coast NHB Championships in December 1998, winning two fights via knockout.[3][2] By 2003, he had fought 24 times, compiling a record of 15-8 (1).

Brink entered the adult film industry under the name "Dick Delaware" after being encouraged by a producer at a party.[2] He shot his first scene on December 6, 2002; it was released under the title Cum Drippers 4.[4]

He is currently competing for the Gladiator Challenge promotion where he is their current Interim Heavyweight Champion and the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship. Aaron also briefly had a career acting in hardcore pornographic films under the name "Dick Delaware", beginning sometime in 2001 and ending in June 2006, this was first revealed after he appeared in a notorious episode of himself during a methamphetamine addiction filmed for the television series Intervention in 2006. Brink later returned to the adult industry in 2019.[5]

Legal issues[edit]

On May 21, 2016, Brink and another man were arrested by Rocklin Police for attempted burglary and possession of a firearm.[1] Brink was also charged for violation of parole and being under the influence of a controlled substance.[1]
