Everyone hear on the site probably knows Daron Cruickshank but the casual fan probably doesn't. He'll be fighting at UFC 151 Jones vs Hendo on the prelims against Henry Martinez. Showing some support for my local MMA fighter.

Hell yeah! Daron is awesome, I got the chance to interview him with BlueSkiesBurn on the MMA@Work podcast and he seems like a real good dude. He is also one of the few twitter followers I have, lol, so I have to give him some love too

Yes he does seem like a really good dude. So this picture is from last night at a local b dubs watching UFC 150. He put the picture on his TUF Facebook page if anyone is interested in checking it out. I don't FB or tweet all I do is this.

I told him that I followed TUF and he asked me who he fought at the TUF Finale. I was like Chris Tickle and you won that UD and you'll be fighting Henry Martinez at UFC 151 in Vegas. He was like yeah you know me. It pays to know this stuff.

That's awesome man! Must have been pretty bad ass to meet him! Did he stay for the main event? And if so, do you know how he scored it?

He didn't stay for the main event. I want to say he left right after the Cerrone vs Guillard fight.
And I don't often drink and lets just say I had a couple too many drinks. So the main event I need to watch it over. I remember everything perfectly leading up to Edgar vs Henderson but not too much after. But me personally was routing fror Frankie as you can see by my Tee but I picked Bendo on fantasy by UD. I wouldn't have minded it at all if Frankie would have won. Bendo is just too big and can avoid damage. Tough match-up for Frankie but like I said I'll be rewatching this fight shortly.

i think he was a little over hyped, but has some solid skills. i think he'll be around for a bit.

Was it because he flew off the handle and attacked Chris Tickle?

I like how he tried to stump you & you had all the right answers for him. He obviously didn't realize he was dealing with a PG member!
