you know.... first time a saw Shonie fight, was at a Shidokan Tourny in a small place in Chicago, everyone came out in traditional style in a Gi, Shonie comes out in a red bedazzled robe, a red bedazzled baseball hat and carrying some belts from judo or muy thai, and i kept thinking... who TF is this asshole..... and hated him.... met some of his friends told them what i tthought and they all laughed and said thats Shonie.... and while you may hate him.... you will never forget him will you? and it made me think a bit, and then Season 4 of TUF happened and i like him a lil more, and then i ran into him in Vegas superbowl weekend (bears v colts and was Silva v Lutter), i saw this black dude in a flashy outfit wearing sunglasses at 11pm and im thinking in my head.... wtf.... then i realised it as i walked by and yelled SHONIE!!! he turned right away and greeted me and talked to me for a few minutes till his cell started getting bombarded. he really was an awesome guy to talk to, we talked about some things from chicago esspecially the Bears, i spoke of guys we both knew as friends.... i havent met him since but hes genuenly a nice and fun guy. i wish him all the best..... shame i havent gotten to support him more.
