FOX Force Five - I liked how the Arena staff we quite keen to have us gone. Truth be told I think Dana's crew were more than ready to thin out - but Dana was quite happy to stay and field questions!

Thanks To El Toro for making this happen, and thanks to DfW for being the best CEO in sports.

DW is a "people pleaser" when it comes to UFC fans and he will do these things all day long. It is his staff who have to look out for him because he will stay there until the last person leaves, thank goodness:)

Adam Millers brother bought Randy's book and at the book signing Randy signed the wrong name- he then said that Adam's brother had to buy another book if he wanted the right name.. something to that effect..

Adam Miller - <blockquote>FOX Force Five - Dana certainly enjoyed the story about Randy's book signing!</blockquote><br />Ha! That was my brother in the front row (I was behind him). <br /><br />This was in New York and he was only there for a weekend. Matt Serra on the other hand stayed to do pictures with him because he came from England while guys were trying to drag him away.<br /><br />Thanks to El Toro.

Funny story alright.. Great to meet you, your Dad and brother..

The other funny story.. Nick Diaz no showing 3 times for the primetime crew.
I don't think he's overly keen on the prospect of Diaz as champion lol Phone Post

Omar sent out an email saying the UFC forbid us fans from posting any videos of the meeting online. I hope it doesn't apply to FO too.

I was sick as a dog yesterday (I'm getting too old to go out and party the night before I'm meant to be doing something) so didn't make it. :-(

Sounds like you guys had an awesome time though, hopefully there will be something like this in the future. Phone Post

I asked DW about the M&G video and he basically said these things are strictly for UGers, the media doesn't need to cover his conversations with fans too. He feels like they have him every day, especially during fight week, and this is his time with UGers.

In JJ's/FO's defense, they were approved in advance to be there and did nothing wrong whatsoever. DW is familiar with JJ and knows he is a UGer (meaning he was welcome/belonged in the M&G), and he has no problem with FO. DW said that if he was asked about it by someone from Zuffa he either didn't hear it or didn't really understand what they were asking or he would have said no to the request for the reasons above.

I specifically asked him if he had said something he regretted and if that's the reason (or at least part of it) he doesn't want it released (because JJ/FO offered to edit those things out before putting it out there) and he was like pfft, hell no- that everything he says (especially his rants) finds its way out there anyway and if a topic is off limits (like when he didn't want to discuss Strikeforce) he has no problem saying so on the spot.

Still kinda bummed because I wanted to watch it too but I understand where he's coming from.

How can a professional cameraman lose the footage. Seriously, that guy looked like a plonker, and deserves a beat-down.

I'm bringing a black rubber dildo and if I see him at the event, expect 'someone' with rubber cock marks over ones fat body. Phone Post

LOL - Lock, stock moment.


BTW - Would it be one from your own collection? It's OK to say, it's not like this information is going out on the interwebz.
