Got back a while ago from UFC 63. Floor seats with my cousin Scott, about 4 rows back from the octagon. Scott and I had a blast. We got in The Arrowhead Pond super early and found our seats so we could watch all the prelim bouts.

We sat about 5 seats to the left of Jamie Pressley. So we talked to her for a few moments when she arrived with her crew. Super nice lady to us. Took photos with us and whatnot. We also had conversations with Rob Schneider, Kevin James, Wilmer Valdaramma (sp?) & Jenna Jameson. All very nice with us to that was cool.

We also took pictures, got autographs, and held quick conversations with:

- Dean Lister
- Josh Koscheck
- Chuch Liddell
- Tim Sylvia
- Rich Franklin
- Georges St. Pierre

All real cool guys and very pleasant to talk with. I've rolled with Lister a couple times down in San Diego at The Boxing Club, so he remembered me and we were just talking for a bit...until he had to go help out Loiseau before his fight.

Koscheck is alright to interact with. Thinks he's cool because of his stupid haircut, but it's pretty f'n bad up close lemme tell ya.

Liddell was SUPER cool in person, and was down for autographs, pictures whatever. There's a guy I wasn't big on for a long time - but he's cool in my book now.

Sylvia = tall MF'er. He was cool with us though. Ask us who are favorite fighters were and whatnot and was like "on the top of your list it reads Tim Sylvia huh?" Wears that belt like there's no tomorrow....HAHA.

Franklin was cool as well. Just like all of 'em. He was constantly being asked for pics and autographs from other people though...so we didn't spend much time with him at all.

GSP...what can you say bad about this dude? NOTHING! He's the man. Doesn't speak the most perfect English - but who cares? I understood him perfectly fine, so it was all good. SUPER polite with us...shaking our hands, talking, signing things, photos. He was down for whatever. Always had a smile on his face....and is just a all around nice guy. Funny thing is...he asked us for our recommendation on a good place to eat after the show. Really cool dude.

The event was all it was cracked up to be. Energetic atmosphere.....SUPER hyped up crowd - that was loud for almost everything. The fights were all awesome...especially up that close.

Pulver / Lauzon = Suprised the hell outta me. Gotta love the class Jens shows after a loss though.

Evans / Lambert = Didn't really care about it. Scott and I were too busy talking to people and whatnot. Evans win. So what.

Guillard / Rudiger = Still was moving around a bit talking. Did catch Melvin almost get finished. But that punch to the mid-section was FIERCE. It was LOUD so I know it did some damage.

Loiseau / Swick = All out war. Crowd was HYPE for this one. Swick suprised us...but was kind of annoying with his un-sportsmanlike finger pointing but oh well. David was exerting a lot of energy trying to land a devastating elbow, but Mike covered up nicely. It was a scramble to the finish with about :13 seconds left in the third! Nice match.

Penn / Hughes = Amazing in person. Crowd was f'n going crazy during both intros! Madness! Penn got a bigger reaction than Hughes as he entered...which I enjoyed. The building intensity during that fight was like nothing I've heard before. The crowd erupted every time Hughes was eating punches from BJ. But, they also popped when Hughes would throw and tried for the takedown. Penn's takedown defense = legendary. I was extemely impressed by that and his insane flexibility. Penn had the crowd on his side during both opening rounds, especially during that triangle/armbar combo. The crowd was rabid because we thought it was over!!! Hughes = saved by the bell. Plain and simple. He got caught and tried to power out a couple times, but BJ had it locked. Just as Matt faded and went flat on the octagon mat, BING round up. Amazing. As soon as Round 3 began, you could just see how drawn out BJ was from that submission attempt. His hands were down and he kept eating punches. Scott and I knew it was over from there. Hughes was the aggressor, and still had plenty left. BJ was not defending anything, walking around, hands down, and breathing heavily. When he got put on his back, and his arms pinned under Hughes...call it a night. Hughes kept pounding on his head, and Penn could do NOTHING to defend from that position so the result was justified.

We will see Hughes vs. Penn III. I can already see it. Awesome event in person, a great night, and a fun time with my cousin Scott who I rarely see these days. Hope you guys didn't fall asleep during my post!

Thanks for reading though!! Later.
Thanks for the review! You should post some of your pictures here with the fighters.

I had the same view as a lot of fight fans that Rashad was yet to prove himself. That, he did in style and domination on Saturday night. I have changed my outlook on him as a fighter and was well impressed with him.

Agreed! I think Hughs vs Penn 3 will happen and Penn will be victorious. Still think Hughs is special but with the right preperation Penn can beat him. Up until Penns fatigue kicked in Hughs looked like he was struggling big time.

Sorry BJ I take it back. There is now a rumour about injury to his ribs.
