Pro fighter I met. It was in a skydive hanger in Georgia. My dad was jumping and I was like 13 he was really nice and showed me how to do an armbar sort of. Had a picture scrap book he brought the instructors to check out. What ever happened to that guy?
What was the first pro fighter you met and how was the experience? Phone Post 3.0

Carlos Newton seminar at the first MMA expo in Toronto. Spent the day learning how to armbar, triangle choke, and slam the guy doing the triangle choke... no kidding, and this was after the Hughes fight. Great day, Carlos is a fun guy, no one at the seminar knew shit about anything, but still Carlos hung around afterward rolling with whoever wanted to go.

Hah hah, that was my first time being thrown judo style, or, having my feet completely over my head and then landing on my head. Still hurts dammit, hah hah.

Ive never met a pro fighter... well at least a known fighter. Im sure Ive seen some pros at the gym Ive been to a couple times... And I have seen Razor Rob and Tiki at the old HB UTC teaching. But oddly enough, Cole, youre the first pro fighter I ever interacted with.

I made some disrespectful comment IIRC and you basically called me a keyboard warrior. I now refrain from being a disrespectful SOB due to that verbal smackdown you gave me in like 09. LOL

Rich Franklin and Jorge Gurgel in Philadelphia airport, months after tuf 2.

I was in the middle of a six hour delay. They were very friendly and even signed my unused puke bag lol.

Went to HS with Lavern Clark. However, the first I really knew who he was is Henry Matamoros before meeting him. Met him when I joined BJJ, he was one the nicest and strangest dudes I had ever met. Absolutely hilarious once you get to know him. Phone Post 3.0

Got a press pass to UFC 15 after mentioning I was interested in writing an article for it for my school newspaper.

Went to the rules meeting beforehand, met Mark Kerr, Vitor Belfort, Allan Goes, Wallid Ismail, and Carlson Gracie. Also met someone who I think was Francisco Filho.

After the last match, I got up on the octagon and threw a couple questions at Big John (very business-like, very professional), Maurice Smith (and got his autograph, how's that for a complete lack of journalistic integrity, LOL), and Tank (in spite of getting his legs kicked to shit, was fairly jocular about it).

Other than my coaches, josh Bryant came and trained at my gym for a day. I got the pleasure of rolling with him for a round after his stint on tuf and he completely dismantled me, but was a great guy none the less. Phone Post 3.0

I think it was at LionHeart Invitational in 1999.  I met Aaron Riley and I'd seen him fight on a lot of HookNShoot VHS tapes!  He fought Joe Merrit of Atlanta.  I met Travis Fulton who also fought on that card.

Benny Urquidez back in 78 or 79. I had no clue who he was at the time, other than our school was part of his fight stable, we just showed up in Tarzana, CA to train.

I think the first MMA fighter I met was Chael and Lindland years ago
