UFC Fighters (and a ring girl) Visit Afghanistan
Hmm, out of Heath Herring, Kenny Florian, Rachelle Leah, and Jorge Riveria I wonder who they were excited to see most?
But seriously, good for them. Kenny "Hellbow" Florian had this to say about the trip: "The hardcore UFC fans couldn't believe we were there," he explained. "They just freaked out. Some of these guys have been out there for like 15 months without seeing anybody and their living conditions are pretty rough."
"From the moment you landed in Afghanistan you knew you were in a war zone," Florian continued. "I was flying around in Blackhawks, flying around Afghanistan with the doors open and anyone would be able to shoot you down. It puts things into perspective, these guys put their lives on the line 24/7 and they're on alert all the time. It's just inspiring, I mean think about all the nerves you have going into the octagon and these guys are out in the field hunting down the Taliban or being hunted down themselves. Its crazy out there; the job they're doing is amazing."
