also how did you get to meet Guida's parents/go to dinner with fighters?
Clay's mom was standing in line in front of me at the merch booth prior to weigh-ins. She saw my shirt and freaked out - had to have a picture with me "to show Clay."
His dad was taking a picture with some other dudes at the fights - I had to get a pic with him since I had one with his mom so I asked and he obliged.
Dinner with Pat Healy (and a no show from Maynard) was arranged by Alden Halpern, CEO of MMA Elite (they sponsor Maynard, Healy, Teixeira, Bisping, etc.). He's an awesome dude. Met him thru MMA@Work (he was a guest on the show) and have kept in touch with him ever since.
