Lorenzo, why not use this occasion to mend the fences with those that played a part in the growth of the sport.  Sure you don’t "need them" but we as fans, patrons, and participants owe you and them a debt of gratitude.  The sport is better with us all on the same side, and that is not unrealistic.  Consider a sit down in Charles honor with Sherdog, Tito, Josh Barnett, etc.  Charles would want that, he was defined by his support and love for others.  Even if it doesn’t mean doing business (except for Sherdog) lets all put bad blood aside and be civil.  Charles showed us it is not all about money in the short term (god I know that), or at least it shouldn’t be.  We have common goals; the advancement of the sport and we tirelessly work for that.  Let’s work together.     

I always believed there is a negotiable resolution to everything if everyone is rational.  Someone wiser then I told me that the true test of a business relationship is not during the early struggles but rather when things are going really well.  I have committed my life to the notion that we are just scratching the surface of what MMA is and can become.  Let’s do it together, with those that had a hand in it in the beginning and those that work tirelessly now.

Do you think there is any chance for MMA fighters (in the UFC) to make the same kind of scratch Pro boxers made in their hay days? Like 10-30 million per fight?

How far out till you think its a possibility?

Lorenzo, can you give us some idea as to when the first WEC PPV is projected to take place?

Also, can you give us any information on Fedor's possible signing (or not signing) with the UFC?

The real lorenzo -  Macman 1000 Mask will remembered in in the UFC forever just wait and see.


First and foremost - this is awesome. Can not wait to see what you guys come up with.

not nearly as important....whoa - the real lorenzo. I never come on here after work, I definitely picked the right night to log on.

I would also like to hear your answers to Crooklyn's q's.

You guys are doing a great job. For all the flack that Dana gets, I think you have a true gem in that one. I imagine he is a blast to work with (and for as well - Cindy).

What are your thoughts on GSP and the whole greasing scandal? How will this type of thing be prevented in the future?

Thanks for coming on here and posting Lorenzo. You coming here is very satisfying to a lot of us "little guys" involved in the sport who always wonder if the powers that be get to see what the true fans do for the support. Charles' passing has brought a small sense of unity to our little mma bubble the past 2 days and coming here has been a lot nicer. You posting just shows that even after life has ended for Charles he still has a huge effect on people and the way things play out. Hopefully this trend of positivity will continue and people like you and Dana will come back here more often.

Lorenzo, first your Casinos are bad ass I stayed in one and had a great time. Secondly if you could change one thing about MMA in it's current state, what would it be.

 Nice to see Lorenzo here. Really puts into perspective how big the impact of losing Charles is. I look forward to seeing a tribute at UFN 18 or UFC 97 if you guys are planning on it.

My partner in crime took the words right outta my head and applied them beautifully here.

 I went to elementary school on one side of Jamboree and high school on the other side of Jamboree Rd. I will tell you this, this road is known for drunks on the EAST bound side of traffic who are leaving the bars on and near Pacific Coast Highwat. Mask was heading WEST bound. What I am illustrating is that  there were NOT many establishments serving alcohol from where was coming from.

I can't wait to see what you're going to do to honor Charles. And I completely agree he's done more for the sport than anyone.
