i went to NOLA this past weekend to see FN25 Battle On The Bayou. I had an absolutely amazing time (kinda hard not to when you're in New Orleans) & got the chance to add a few souvenirs to my collection along the way.
for all of you who say "Pics or GTFO!", I will add a thread w/ pics later once I figure out why my phone won't let me take them off of it & get more from the others in my group
me & my friends started off at the weigh-ins. I got pics w. Wandy, Munoz, Goldie, Buffer, Joe Silva & Rogan. we then found a spot in the corner away from the weigh ins where all the fighters were walking by after weighing in. NOBODY was there.
I got Autographs in my BOTB program from Edwards, Stone, Riddle, Bailey, Dunham, Rocha, McKenzie, MacDonald, Belcher, McGee, & Ellenberger.
My drunk ass was seeing dizzy towards the end & being the biggest fanboy in my group, I will admit that I screwed up tremendously. I asked Jake Ellenberger why he shaved his beard bc I was expecting Court to be the next guy to walk by. He told me, "Wrong guy", turned my page to his page & signed it anyways
I'll never forget it bc my girlfriend wont stop reminding me about it
I got autographs afterwards from Arianni, Meathead & Dana.
Fri Night Saw Rogan at the House of Blues (AMAZING live show) & spoke to him for 5 minutes afterwards. My friends hung out w/ Meathead, Bader, Goldie & Delagrotti at HOB, but I was too busy watching the standup.
Then at the fights I got to see a pretty solid card & got autographs from Mike Swick & Phil Davis at the autograph booth. (I couldve gotten Carwin & Schaub later, but they were signing during fights & I was not going to miss a fight just for an autograph.
I missed out on Guillard, Royce, Carwin & Schaub.
All in all, was a very awesome experience! Can't wait to go again!
