I think another good area where the membership could benefit from your experiences would be non-fistic tales of the world of promotions and booking.
Me and Chuck;
Now before we begin I'm not professing that I'm friends with Chuck Liddell. I know his brother, I'm friends with his partner, one of his friends was my kickboxing coach for 2 years, and half the guys in the gym used to go to high school with the guy. Not to mention my best friend was Chuck's brother's ex girlfriend and friend of their family. Basically I'm around his circle.
Chuck's a funny guy and before he became so popular he used to socialize much more and was funny as hell.
#1 After a kickboxing match a reporter asked for an interview. I just got done with a guy Chuck was cornering. Chuck comes up and says "Hey I'm going to be UFC champ one day you should be interviewing me" with a sly grin I nodded, "yeah, he's right you know."
So the girl start to interview him and I start cracking jokes behind her, stuff like "that was a nice foot print I left on that guys chest", "thanks for letting me know he was going to throw that over hand right". So the entire time Chuck couldn't keep a straight face until my friend dragged me off laughing our ass off.
#2 Chuck comes up to me at a fight promotion. My guy is going to fight his guy. "Dude here's some gum",
"No Thanks Chuck"
"No, seriously dude take the gum"
"No thank you".....
Then he walks off. (5 minutes later I got the joke).
#3 My third MMA match. Promoter walks up to me, Chucks standing next to me, " Hey omega, why'd you take the fight on such short notice?"
"I don't want him to think I'm a *****", I point to Chuck.
"Dude I don't care what you do I'll still think you're a *****"......
That made my morning. Now I can sleep the rest of the day off.

It took me a while to figure out the gum part too... :(
I must admit I still do not.
I actually trolled Omega one time, back in the day…
If I remember right, another member told me to shut it, and informed me in the polite way we do around here, that you were the man. Still feel kind of stupid about it!
PS still do not get the Gum joke…
He was supposed to coach a guy. If he is chewing gum, it's hard to talk, so he can't coach as well.

oh. I was thinking it had to do with "walking and chewing gun at the same time" or something, but then where was the payoff...?
