Ramsey Nijem saw the picture and knew the guy looked familiar.

It was C.J. Keith, who had just signed with the UFC. And even though Nijem jokes that a few shots to the noggin sometimes have him wrong, he was positive he and Keith had crossed paths before.

"We went to a wrestling camp in high school together," Nijem recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio. "And I remember seeing his picture after he got signed by the UFC, and I was like, 'I swear I went to wrestling camp with that kid.'"

I'm an accidental Nijem fan. My GF and I were having breakfast at MGM the morning of UFC 137, and we saw Ramsey saying his goodbyes with his fam and his boys before his fight. It was a pretty cool moment to see, he seemed like a really nice guy, and his friends and fam did too. So I cheer for him now.
