    @disposableassassin you watching these live on the forums? I'm 50/50, but if I can it'd be fun to watch our bet together.

    Too bad you can’t hold hands while you’re watching.

    If you don't put out on the first bet there won't be a second.

    Hoping this card outshines what it looks like on paper.

    So a little bit on my time working the UFC Philly show.

    Josh Emmett went into that fight with a busted knuckle on his middle finger on his right hand. He asked if he could tape it up and I felt fucking terribly telling him that in PA you can't have any tape on the skin, anywhere. He understood and still went out there and damn near killed a very game MJ with the right hand.

    After his fight he joked with me saying that he thought of me right before he threw it, half complaining that he wished he was able to tape up his finger. Was very professional and lighthearted after his fight, his whole team for that matter.

    Paul Craig is fucking crazy hard to understand and had the easiest mood in the back. His warmup kicks were fucking thunderous.

    Jack Hermensson was quite, all smiles, and very easy to work with.

    Jessica Aguilar is all business and does a wild stretching chiropractic regimen before she goes out. I seriously thought that her trainer was going to break her leg or tear something but she was insane flexible.

    Michelle Waterson has the smallest voice ever. Like, when she speaks I feel like I'm talking to a little kid.

    Desmond Green is fucking hilarious.

    Michael Johnson is also fucking hilarious.

    Justin Gaethje is pretty cool too. In PA, we're a bit strict on the "Not jumping on to the top of the cage" post win thing, much less fucking backflipping off of it. So I has asked him, after he wins, to try and not to do that. His response was "Well, if I break my neck, I'll be sure to tell everyone that you specifically told me not to do it".

    Trevor Whittman is a gawd daymn gentleman.

    Most of the fighters you come across are either very laid back and friendly or extremely introverted; especially on fight night. Not alot of complete assholes. The head trainers, from my experiences, are the ones that will piss you off.
    Sounds like it was a cool experience for you. I hope you have more like it.

    This 100%.

    Like more so in boxing than MMA - but in my experience, the fighter just wants to fight and the corner wants to nit-pick about shit that really won't even play a role in the fight.

    One example, when you're wrapping hands you traditionally take a thin strip of tape and put in in between the fingers to secure the top pad to the "bar" of tape found on the inside of the palm. In PA you're not allowed to roll that tape/twist that tape at all. You're instructed to fold it, or tear it super thin.

    I seriously have no exact reason why you can't other than the athletic director said so.

    99.9% of the time it's no issue, but I've had 2 or 3 corners lose their fucking shit because of it...all while the fighter gets annoyed because they don't give a shit.

    Hey, sorry, been hiding out a bit. Did you watch live? My god, when Justin got rocked I expected this to be another name loss for me. But I think those low calf kicks really took Barboza out of his comfort quicky. Especially when he ran to reset. What'd you think of the fight?!

    Are you outsourcing his name or do you already have something in mind?

    "Vince Knows Best" would be perfect for Wrestlemania season.

    I was thinking "Gay for GayG" but that's because I don't know anything about wrestling. What does Vince know now? How to fuck MMA with Brock Lesnar's dick?

    Oh, I'm not mean. If I was, I'd just repeatedly point out what a pussy @Cornbread and Ketchup for not being able to do pushups. Honestly, does anyone expect the terrorists to not win with this guy defending us?
