that's me and the missus at the weigh ins, Gabriel is a very nice guy, very humble, interesting to talk to and will no doubt be a good ambassador for the sport.

I see it on your second post. Man... that guy's nogin is huge compared to your's. If only headbutts were still allowed. I'm always interested in if the UFC buffs heights to make their fighters seem bigger, so what is your height in that pic?

Thanks for posting the picture.

You're damn right, Gabie's melon is enormous...lol...

My guess would be that Nate is about 5'7"... Or so it seems...

No offense meant at all, but I have to say; well done on the "missus"

Sweet picture! I lived in England for awhile and dated a girl from Manchester. How many times a day do you say "In'it?
Guess you have to be american to get that one. Luckily I speak both British and American

HA! Theres a woman from Liverpool coming out to Montana this summer to watch everyone fight, and I know I'm going to have no way to communicating with her. I talk almost entirely in New England slang and she talks like the cast of Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang.

Here's a few:
In'it = huh, as in "Nice Day, in'it"
fag = cigarette
Skint = broke, as in no money
nick = Borrow, or steal, but also being busted for something. Also "in thenick" is in jail. Very useful word
knock up = wake up call
snog = french kiss
shag = If you've seen Austin Powers, you know already
Porky Pies = Lies
In Barney = in trouble

They also say 20 for a pack of smokes so "20 fags" isn't a gay convention!

"Fags" is hardly used now. "Snout" is much more common.

"Porky pies" is cockney rhyming slang, and isnt really used anywhere but in London. That said, Ive been to london many, many times and have friends and family down there, and no one really speaks Cockney Rhyming anyway, apart from in Charles Dickens books.

"Barney" =/= Trouble, "Barney" is actually slang for "Fight".

English slang 101

Really? Maybe it was a Norwich (Nor-itch) thing

I thought "knock up" meant "to impregnate". Well, it does where I'm from anyway.
