I asked Pat Barry if I could take a photo with him, he didnt understand my accent and thought I said that I wanted to fight him. He looked a little surprised and said "You want to fight me?", when I explained what I said he laughed and explained he had a hang over.

I've met Rich Franklin a few times and he's always been great. I was actually pretty surprised with Frank Mir. I always thought he seemed like a douche but he was actually a super nice guy.

haha! That's funny. Reminds me of the guy who saw one of our green namers (forget who) driving down the road and threw out the UG sign. Fighter thought he was flipping him off..

I'd have to say the coolest "MMA" fighter I've met was Chael Sonnen. Had dinner/drinks with him and a bunch of guys after a Sportfight event, meet him at the gym a few times, Sushi Boat once, and every time he has been super cool, and fun to talk to.

Partied with bones in Edmonton at union hall nightclub after hours. He gave us free drinks then took our designated driver back to his hotel leaving my buddies and I with an 80 dollar cab ride home lol. Off topic, coolest was Franklin. Phone Post

Dan The Wolfman Theodore. By a motherfucking mile.


Seriously though, probably Spencer Fisher is the most fun to hang out with, and the only time I was ever really starstruck was El Guapo or Judo Gene.

Yeah, Frank Mir was cool. Dan Henderson was chill. And believe it or not, Josh Koscheck was also a really nice guy.

Royce, Renzo and Rickson were all cool. Renzo was probably the "nicest".. but I think that is more personality than anything. They are all good guys.

So many of them have been nice, or even super cool...

But Wanderlei...

He acted like I was his long lost brother.

Coolest guy ever,
