Ah the civilian version of an M-16. Had a friend who had one...not sure how he got it though. Those things are meant to hurt people. It goes through an entry point and recoils out tearing muscle and bones. Crazy stuff man.

Dear Lisa,

I'm sure it'll be a lot easier since you're a girl so their guard will be down. I did some journalism before. Try to stay away from standard questions cuz you gotta think that's all they ever get asked. Most important key is to do your research; family, kids, background, etc. They'll appreciate that. IE: I remember watching your fight before you got into the UFC that type of stuff. Rogan and Ariel have the best interviews. They know how to engage and interact once the interviews goes. Then they improvise which is a sign of a very good journalist and interviewer.

Loretta Hunt was the absolute worst. Karyn Bryant is a little annoying especially when she busts out her Portuguese como de cice...a para me para tu...luta livre...Brazil!

Good luck!

PS: For your safety I hope it's not Rampage you're interviewing...roflz!

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

WOW! Thanks for the comprehensive response my main issue is the people I am looking at are a)overseas and b) female, so I don't have the ladies-touch I guess lol. And I may have to do it online, but I take on board the part also about making sure the questions are different, interesting and open for them to go off on wonderful, yet related, tangents.

I have no interviews lined up, but am looking to contacting some wonderful WMMA fighters for MMAForum interviews. I'll see what I can do, and I have no worries about being motorboated...I have no intention of even giving Rampage a second of my time haha!

ah cool, I'll have to look into Skype, have an ancient laptop with no cam, and my phone is too old even for going online let alone skype...so I have my work cut out for me lol.

Think I'll have to go back to Twitter to contact some of these fighters.

hmmmmmm, much work to be done.

I'm sitting on the best internet I've ever had. Downloading at 4 mb/s+, that's like 10 times what I had before. Feels like I've died and gone to heaven.
