I was there that night too, but I was definitely nowhere near as thrilled as you. I was pretty disappointed in that night, he was pretty funny and all, and friendly while meeting him and asking him questions, but after that I found that he pretty much kept to his corner rather than socializing. And a girl was promised that she would play against him in the UFC video game on the PS3 and he didn't even talk to her or anything, he blew her off, which I find incredibly rude. Ontop of that, I don't think he is a good role model, amazing fighter yes, good role model no. While I was there I was socializing with a few guys who work with a company that helped make that night happen, they were partying with him the night before and well, he should have been partying with Lindsay Lohan...to say the least.
Hmm.. Upon further thought, I have to agree with you..
I was excited that I had met him no doubt, that was because it was the first time I have ever met a fighter (and a famous one at that). But I really agree with you, I did find him a little stuck-up and he almost did have an attitude, and I totally agree with you about him sticking in his corner and not really socializing much with anybody...
He was funny though when he spoke to everyone in the mic, and some of the answers he gave to the questions we were asking were hilarious, but I totally agree he is not a good role model...
And as far as the partying comment, I wouldn't doubt it.. Forrest has lots of time before his next fight and... well, you know.. stuff leaves the system in a couple weeks or so.. but thats just my sole opinion..
I wish Forrest all the best though and it was pretty cool meeting him, I still dont have my pics back but I will post them sometime in the next 2 or 3 weeks..
