Nope you won't get a million just for posting.

Post why you deserve credits and I might give them to you.

Post about MMA, about UFC 141, books you read, life stories, your hobbies, your passions in life, what makes you glad to be alive or what makes you hate it, or what makes you laugh-- anything.

Post away and I'll judge it to award credts.

I'll probably limit this thread to 20-30 replies so get them in quickly.

This thread, is VERY cool, I guess ill post about me hobbies.

I am a stand up comic in ny, (open mic scene). every now and then I make a buck or two. But I absolutley love doing it.
after 6 months of doing it in canada, I dropped everything quit my job, and moved to ny, to grind it out in the scene here.

Doing comedy in ny is cool, because you get the opportunity to get up on stage every night, multiple times a night if you like, and you get the chance to meet some cool people. im managed to meet alot of todays great comics. the only downside is there are an enormous amount of failed comics, that are the gatekeepers between you and the mic, especially the good ones. And they have no problem taking advantage of young hungry comics. Some say its to test them, but its not.
You also come across alot of fake people, if a comic plays a background role and you see a glimpse of the back of thier head, they will promote themselves as joe comic from nbc. cause people are desparate to get tv credits, so clubs will book them.
But in the end its worth it, im willing to put in the years, so clubs will book me for 50 bucks a night, and so i can rent out a closet somewhere. Because I enjoy it, and its my everlasting quest to fulfill the most cliche statement ever "find something you love, and never work a day in your life".

*excuse my puncuation ect. kinda just blurted that all out.

oh and I also wanna put a bunch of money on Fitch vs hendricks NOT going the distance, Cause i like the payout

I don't know that I deserve any credits, but here's a memory:

Back in the early 90's, there was lots of cross-training going on between the militaries of the U.S. and Canada. Some of that training involved infantry units from Canada heading to Fort Irwin in Dealth Valley, California, in the Mojave desert, to train at the National Training Centre there.

Some memorable moments:

- In the process of establishing ourselves in some of the neglected trench systems for a defensive exercise, creeping into the darkness armed with a lighter and an aeorsol can of bore cleaner to incinerate any Black Widow spiders and scorpions we were unable to capture in ammo boxes.
Those that did become our prisoners suffered a gruesome fate, as they were forced to do battle gladiator-style in said ammo boxes. Much betting and merriment was enjoyed by all.

- While in formation waiting to begin our forced march to the aforementioned defensive position (app. 14 miles), a group of American armored cavalry troops approached us to ask what we were doing. Upon being told, they looked incredulous, and with big round eyes asked, "Y'all are just gonna' walk there?!"

- First arriving on-base, and being awestruck rolling past the huge pool, the restaurants, the movie theatre, the schools- basically, this city-in-the-desert. We had nothing like it.

- For those that have never seen it, MILES gear (Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System) is a system of webbing and emitters/sensors that go on your person and weapon/s. The IR emitters are mounted on weapons (everything from personal weapons to tank guns can be fitted), and are triggered upon the discharging of a blank round.
The sensors are mounted on the webbing, which is in worn by troops, or mounted on the weapons systems, and picks up the IR energy. Upon being "struck", the IR emitter on the weapon is disabled, thus simulating the casualty. (Think: Laser Tag).

Both ourselves and the opposing force were fitted with MILES gear in all shapes and sizes for the aforementioned defensive exercise. We were in the trenches, and the OpForce was supposed to bridge a theoretical river to our front. Once bridged, the OpForce's troops and vehicles would be free unleash their simulated wrath upon us, causing us to cower in fear. Or something.

You know what works great for taking out a MILES-sporting bridge layer while it's "bridge" is fully extended almost straight up in the air? Volley-firing anti-tank (Dragon) MILES-sporting missles.
You know what's better than taking out that bridge layer?
Taking out two at the same time.

Attack halted. Opforce loses without firing a shot.

Commanding officers and umpire staff yelling.

Good. Times.

Why you should give me 1,000,000 credits? I don't know, it's your choice.

I'm just a simple guy who lives in Chile (yep, South America), loves the mixed martial arts and trains practically every day just for the love of the sport.

Posting in this forum is one huge test for me because I'm not english or british so I have to post in a language that it's not my first language.

I was one of the people who get into the sport because Brock Lesnar, the Next Big Thing, the WWE Champion was about to try it and I found it was great to see him back in action (I'm a huge pro-wrestling fan, by the way) and I'm not ashamed of that.

I've follow every UFC live event since the Lesnar vs Carwin PPV and I've watch plenty of MMA companies around the world (I've watched a lot of DREAM, PRIDE, WEC).

Last year was the beggining in the MMA world for me and I get so interested that I'm part of a gym who loves mixed martial arts. Not weird, right? Well, right here no one even follows the MMA. I'm just a guy who loves it and plans to show it to my fellow chilean people.

I'm watching the seasons of the Ultimate Fighter and I fell in love with the show.

PD: I've got the greatest username evah. GO GET SOME, DONALD CERRONEY.
