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.

JJSFC - 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.

From John Joes Twitter..

'great video of @danawhite meeting members of @theUG in London today... Unfortunately it has been lost due to technical difficulties :/;

:(
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.

So sorry you didn't get any time, guys. DW wouldn't have canceled if at all avoidable. Remind me the next time they come to the UK and I'll try to get him to do this again.

Yeh we were in row 5 mate. Was amazing being that close. We met Siver outside the arena as well. I don't know how to post photo's from the app or I would post the shot I took of them from the other side!

Some of those shots sound Nasty when you're that close. Phone Post
