Pretty cool dude. Soft hands(no homo) but firm handshake.

 

It was about 4 a.m.and I was taking a break from blackjack, and was walking around the craps table checking out the action when I noticed a big burly dude playing craps who looked like Phil Davis. I went up to him and asked, "Weren't you supposed to fight Forrest Griffin?" He nodded and said, "Yep." By then, I had my iPhone out and asked if I could take a picture. He graceously turned me down and said he was trying to play some craps with his younger brother and I noticed they were  also with an older gentleman(his dad?) so I left them alone. But I thought to myself might as well play some craps with UFC fighter Phil Davis. I said that under my breath, too, as I walked up and he acknowledged with a nod and might have been impressed that I even knew who he was.

So we played for a bit and I asked him how crappy(pun intdended) it was that Forrest backed out with a knee injury and Phil didn't have a bad thing to say about Forrest. It was getting pretty late and I tried one more time to get a photo and took my phone out, only to have zero juice left. I muttered, "Damn my phone died," and Phil replies with "That will kill it for you" or something along those lines. It sounded like he was going to accept my photo request but my dumbass didn't have a full charge. I wished him luck on his next fight and he thanked me and I made my way.

Cut to this morning and I'm checking out and walking to my car when I see "Mr. Wonderful" loading up his black car(prius?) next to mine. I was like, "My phone's charged now." He gave a chuckle and says, "I guess this picture was meant to be. Let's do this." I found an Asian girl that was walking by to snap a photo of us. Told him i was going to do the "fist pose," he says, "I'll do it too, then." Wasn't a big fan of him before but I respected his 10-1 record and his beating of Tim Boetsch. But cool cat demeanor will have me rooting for him against Vinny Magalhaes and whoever else gets in his way.

I wonder if Phil posts here?

Asian Vigilante with a Death Wish??? I LOL'd. VTFU, too.

 

Only on the UG where you can tell a story about meeting an MMA fighter and everyone directs their attention to how "UG" you look. FrontRowBrian comes to mind. Hopefully I'm not that bad.

 

TL;DR version of OP...Met phil Davis. Cool cat that never plays the Pass Line. He only bets the odds.

I'm surprised he is sporting his own shirt like that.

Usually it's a given that if you are in a band that you don't wear your band's t-shirt as you go out and about so I imagined the same applies to athletes.

I get it wearing a shirt at an event or a fan fest or anything with the sponsors but just looks a little egotistical or "hope I get recognized" to sport that leaving a casino on personal business.

A guy who wears his own shirt is not one I'd think would turn down photo ops.

All that being said, it sounds like he was gracious and you were a good fan and you came away with a cool moment and he wasn't bothered or annoyed.

Your memories will be worth more than the picture but at least you finally did score it. Phone Post

He was checking out...probably just threw on whatever tshirt and didn't think twice about it. I'd imagine he probably gets a million of those damn things free so the odds are probably pretty high any tshirt he wears will be somehow related to MMA (sponsors tshirts etc).

You're not bad Charlie Bronson rocks and there are several versions of him. You're both the Tom hardy and the old school Bronson Phone Post

Some people are weird around celebs. You seem to be one of them.

My favorite thing to do around celebs is not even acknowledge their presence.

It gives them a break and at the same time saves my dignity as a man.

Apart from the time I cornered those geeks from Good Charlotte on the streets of Vancouver and made them take a picture with my gf for her birthday.

I guess I only like bugging celebrities I don't like. Phone Post
