No, that wasn't Dana White's pre-UFC 101 pep talk to the fighters. That's a quote from Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission Executive Director Greg Sirb on what he's telling the fighters ahead of Saturday's event. He says remember this isn't Vegas or New Jersey-bring your "B" game, and Philly fans will be Philly fans...meaning the fighters are going to hear it.

Back on topic, The fights on the card should have enough action for the live fans I think. It will be all good!

This is going to be an awesome card. I'm looking forward to watching the fights on the internet after haha. And I'm liking the poster for this event.

Philly fans aren't known for being very nice if they don't like something. So there better not be any Kalib Starnes debacels.

Didn't see very many match ups that didn't look exciting. Even the new guys like Cramer and Riddle are known to stay in the pocket and bang it out, and all the Main Card fights are top notch! Philly should be satisfied.

The classic story is that the Philly fans booed Santa Clause at an Eagles game many years ago. My uncle claims to have been there, and they didn't just boo him, they were throwing snowballs at him.

There could be a bit of "legend" in his story.

This is going to be a great card. I can't wait for tommorow. With guys like Silva, Griffin, Penn, and Ken Flo I am pretty sure all these fighters will be bringing their A games. Philly is going to be very happy with the results of UFC 101.

Definetly not a legend, my dad was there back in the day and it was a snowball assault.

Im not big on rude obnoxious fans and it really doesn't matter what town they live in to me. I thought the commissioner looked a bit like a pompous windbag even though I understand the history.
