Pat Healy was an unbelievably cool guy to me and my wife. Talked to him a few times on twitter and at the weigh ins for his fight with Hirota he came out, introduced himself and invited us to lunch with him and his family! One of the nicest guys I've met. Renzo Gracie also was very cool.

The same night we spent a few hours talking to Gareth Davies from ESPN. This was in Sydney at ufc 127 Phone Post

Kendall Grove was really nice. Saw him in the parking lot at UFC 102 and he talked to us for a while (while his wife/gf or whoever looked kind of peeved waiting in their van.) Jens was super cool and nice to everyone when I saw him up in Seattle. Cung Le seemed kind of detached (someone mentioned this earlier) and strictly business. Same with Randy (but this was on a night where his son was fighting, so I can chalk that up to nerves/stupid obligation to meet with fans when he should be with Ryan), Condit was cool, Dan Hardy was super cool (even after his loss to AJ), Korean Zombie was fun, polite, and genuine even through the language barrier, Alves was nice to a huge group of fans at an Expo up in Vancouver, Schaub seemed kind of douchey (but I didn't talk to him much), Barry seemed nice but a little impatient with fans taking pictures (I'm sure it gets old waiting for idiots' friends trying to figure out the camera), Chael was awesome, Vinny was really nice when I recognized him and talked to him in SJ for the Shogun/Hendo fight. Spong was cool and seemed a little surprised when I recognized him (this was also in SJ, so maybe just about the time he started coming to the states?), Werdum was a nice guy, too. I don't go out of my way to bother people and generally just like to say hi.

As a kid I remember being upset at some of my favorite sports stars being douchey to fans. MMA guys are by far nicer to their fans, but it could just be the small amount of people that actually recognize them. I'm sure it's annoying for someone like Shawn Kemp back in the 90's having everyone in Seattle go out of their way to talk to him. Also, MMA guys tend to have small egos as opposed to someone that hits a ball with a stick, for example. Another reason why it is such a great sport.

Met James mcsweeney and he was a top lad. Took a picture and had a chat. Picture was a bit blurry so he made him take it again and made sure I was happy with It. All this after losing to Ricco Rodriguez.

If you want to call him a fighter Alex Reid is a prick. Phone Post

Jens was cool, Bisping cool, Weidman kind of a dick, Carwin cool, Rashad cool, Bones cool, Babalu cool, King Mo kind of a dick, Werdum cool, Cruz kind of a dick, Pettis cool, Hughes dick, Miguel Torres real cool. Bu the guys that ive met that we're dicks may have just had a bad day who knows they're human. Phone Post

Danny Martinez and Efrain Escudero. Me and a friend chilled and drank all night with them after WEC 53. Funny as hell and met a bunch of other fighters that night thru them.
