UFC 87 was absolutely amazing. All of the fights were great and you can't go wrong with GSP's utter destruction of Fitch. Fitch has been one of my favorites along with GSP but GSPis my top obviously. Fitch deserves nothing but respect for what he showed. he has the heart of a champion. he just would not give up. i can't believe how GSP improves every time we see him.
other than the fights my 5 days in Minneapolis were awesome. i ended up staying at the same hotel as all of the fighters. the highlight of my trip other that the fights had to be meeting Wanderlei. he had just got off the elevator and was walking towards me and we made eye contact and i just went "WANDERLEI!!!!!" and he put his hand out smiled and gave me a hug hahaha. i got a picture with him. he is probably one of the nicest people i have ever met. he showed nothing but love for all of his fans. he didn't turn down any pictures or autographs from anyone and he constantly had a smile on he face. i also met Clay Guida, Sean Sherk, and Matt Hughes. Clay was defintily the coolest out of all of them. just an all around likeable person.
i went to the UFC Fight Club Q&A with Dana and Amir which was awesome. the had 2 mics set up and anyone could get up and ask either one a question. the funniest part (which i got on video) was when this Tito freak asked Dana why he couldn't be the bigger man and just not respond to anything Tito said. Dana proceeded to rip this woman a new asshole for about 3 minutes and 30 seconds. it was ****** hilarious.
i also encountered one of the scariest moments of my life. my brother, dad, and I were walking to a resturant to get some dinner and i see a guy that looks like Lyoto Machida walking down the sidewalk. hes kind of far away so i couldn't really tell if it was him or not so i was staring at him and as he got closer i realized it was him but i didn't say anything and we made eye contact. we held eye contact until our backs were towards eachother and for some reason he looked like he wanted to tear my head off. hahaha scariest moment of my life.
this morning before leaving the hotel i saw Fitch come down into the lobby. his face was pretty messed up and i wanted to stop him and show him some support but i just figured i'd leave him alone because he looked pretty disappointed. GSP is and will always be my favorite fighter but i have been following Fitch even since he came into the UFC. the heart and determination to keep pushing forward Fitch showed in that fight was amazing. next to Wanderlei, he is the toughest mo fo in the UFC. i have absolutely nothing but respect for what he did saturday night.
