Pics From My Weekend at UFC 84

Some of you knew I was at UFC 84 in Vegas this weekend, got to stay at the MGM Grand for it so fighters were left, right, and center around the hotel. Here a few pictures from my phone, I still have to wait for my buddies brother to upload the rest and I'll get those up after.






Me and Sean Sherk, guy f'd up this picture. He was staying on my floor to.





Overall it was a kick ass weekend, every fighter we met or talked to was more than happy to talk for a few minutes. Bustamante and JZ Cavalcante were there to, I hope that's a sign there in talks with the UFC.

On a funny note, we met Mike Goldberg who had a cast on, he said he broke his arm boxing but just met a tailor that had his suit altered so you couldn't tell on TV. Really cool guy too. Dude was actually pretty ripped.

Wow man thats so awesome, getting a pic with Nogueira is just off the charts - you've touched Rodrigo Nogueira who has probably got Fedor fist cells planted in his face, and he probably picks his face and he probably shook your hand? So you have also basically touched Fedor Emelianenko.

But in all seriousness that is too ******* cool. Yeah Goldberg is a class guy I heard him on some radio show and he seemed such a nice happy guy, he does mess up a fair bit but oh well. Bustamante would of been there because of Toquinho but yeah, did I say that i'm jealous?

How much did it cost to stay in the hotel? If you don't mind me asking.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Awesome Sinister! It must have been really cool to see all those guys and I like that you had the balls to go talk to them.



Credit to Toxic for the sick sig!

That's awesome. I'm really jealous of you. I got to meet Ken Shamrock and Carlos Newton and Pat Militech at an IFL event but I didn't get any pics with them and they aren't the same as meeting Big Nog. Congrats.

You'd actually be surprised how nice every fighter is, we were eating dinner right next to Big Nog so it was only fair that we waited to ask when they finished eating and they were all for it.

By far Machida was the nicest guy I met all weekend, he was so happy when we asked for pictures and probably could have taken a whole bunch and he was down. They almost seemed stunned how many people wanted to meet and take pictures with them.

About the hotel, we stayed at the MGM Grand so for the flight out of Bellingham there and back, plus 3 nights it rounded out to be about 650 a person which isn't bad at all.
