"The California Narcotic Officers’ Association held its annual Training Symposium at the Hyatt Grand Champions and Esmeralda Resorts is Indian Wells on November 16-21, 2006. The Conference ended with an entertainment evening with UFC legends Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell, Randy “The Natural” Couture, and UFC referee “Big” John McCarthy who is also a LAPD officer. “Theses warriors were extremely well received and each were given huge standing ovations on their introductions and at the end of the event.” All three signed autographs, posed for pictures, and talked with the cops for three hours."
