Shane Carwin - mumbled more than talked to us, not overly friendly. Basically the way he describes a fight on TUF in a monotone voice, that was him at the expo



I remember looking at fans pics with fighters on UFC's FB page, Carwin hates guys, every pic he took with a dude just a dull look or close to a mean look on his face, if it was with a girl or a kid, instant smile.

I haven't met any fighters.....but a ton of big musicians, surprisingly the coolest dude is portrayed by most as a complete A Hole. Philip Anselmo of Pantera....hung for 30 minutes in shitty bar drinking and watching a football game with me talking about boxing. Good times!

I'll steal Bubbles idea and do an cool and not so cool list.

Cool:

Terry Etim, I've met him a few times now and he even remembers my name. Cool guy always willing to talk and offer insight on the fights he's interested in. Posed for a picture the first time I met him and was honestly shocked someone knew who he was.

Paul Sass, almost exactly the same as Etim but Sass actually came for a drink with us while he killed time waiting for his friends. Honestly the coolest guy I've met posed for pictures and comes over to say hi when he sees me. He also apologised after his recent loss to because he knew I had some money on him. Completely unwarranted but what a humble guy.

Randy Couture, went to his book signing in Liverpool. Not many people knew to much about MMA so when me and my friends asked questions he spent some time answering them. Spent a solid 10 minutes talking to us in the queue and even hung around after just to talk to us about his retirement and the plot for the new expendables.

Andrei Arlovski, I saw him in Heathrow airport in London and I've always been a huge fan. He was in a rush for his plane but took the time to pose for a picture and sent me a message on his site wishing me luck for my masters!

Rampage, met him once in Manchester he was on his way for a meal with what I assume was his girl at the time but still stopped took pictures, chatted and even invited us out to a club he was going to be at later that night. Took our names and got us in for free. He spoke to us for a while once we where in there but he was with his girl and a few friends so he left not long after.

Jason Tan, I see the guy every week and he's a gent. Helped me no end with my grappling and goes out his way to make a novice like me feel welcome in his gym.

Not so cool:

Marcus Davis, was a complete asshole. Was rude to almost everyone and event tried to slap a camera out of some guys hand. I walked away after that.

Paul Kelly, the guy is an outright tool. He came to to the gym I go to and basically tooled everyone except Jason Tan, eventually he was asked to sit out and left soon after. Wouldn't pose for pictures with the people that asked and was bragged too much about how awesome he was.

Ken Shamrock, met him at a Cage Rage event. Said hi and asked for a picture. He said come back later and turned around. Other than that he could be a nice guy.

lol Arianny. She had been kicked out of a club the night before I met her & she was not in a good mood. One local told me she was fighting with another chick. Anyways, she was rude as shit to all my friends & others around, but I screamed "Arianny, I love you! Will you sign my magazine?" She walked up. Signed my magazine. Ignored everyone else & walked off. She's def not cool, but I got lucky lol!

When I was at Koscheck's afterparty, a couple of my other friends were at a bar that Hamill was at. According to them, he was quite drunk but loved everyone and took pictures with whoever. At times he forgot hes a beast and the fans are average Joes and may have grabbed or hugged people a little too strongly, but not in a dick way.

I'm not 100% sure but I think I have ran into Cole Escovedo in a casino before. I played on a poker table and sat next to a fellow who was talking about mma. I chimed in on the conversation and found out he was a professional mma fighter. I never asked for his name. Years later, I just put 2 to 2 together and came to the conclusion it was a good chance it was him, Cole Escovedo. The fellow I met was light skin and skinny with Mexican or Spanish blood just like Cole. And BTW, he was sort of a dick.

Honestly

Mir acted like a snob
Guida straight out lied to my face
Cain rubbed me the wrong way
Evans also acted like a sissy
Frank trigg acted high and almighty

Fighters who have I enjoyed
Met Bader a few times cool dude
Fitch impressed me with his humbleness
Sat next to Diego Sanchez on a plane he was way cool
And dos santos was cool as hell


Met chael sonnen a few years back. And he is the real deal
