    If you'd like Dan, I can find out what he told Morton, Dunn, and Jones. I work with Brian and train with all three of them. I've only seen Matt fight once, but he recently married, I think, so I'm not sure if he'll be training any, anyway. More along the lines of serving the role of an extra heavy bag, but I learn all the same. If it's any consolation, I believe the opinions in the Omaha area to concur with your general line of thought.
    That whole thing happened so long ago. Those guys all have a life and probably haven't dwelled on it. If they DO remember, that's great. I am a little curious about what he told them.

    I think Morton was bitter over not fighting me when he had the chance. I think he watched my fight with Ken Luther and thought that since a guy nowhere near as good as he is beat me so easily, he missed out on an easy "W" and payday. That's life.

    If you see Jesse, tell him I said thanks for handling the situation the way he did. I don't know what his story was, but he was a true gentleman.

    I kind of remember Dunn smirking during the parking lot incident. I guess if he was pissed I should be thankful that's all he did.

    I'm not sure if Matt stayed around for that or not. I just remember seeing him in the bar before the UFC started.

    Please tell those guys that I'm sorry for any misunderstanding. Thanks.

    This was on today's (Tuesday, December 23) news page at mmaweekly.com:

    Mason Shut Down in Des Moines

    A couple of weeks ago, we reported that "The Gladiators" promoter Chad Mason seemed to be ruffling a bunch of feathers, promising fights for many fighters that never materialized. The most public of these fighters was Sean Sherk who, according to him, was basically stood up by Chad Mason in regards to a show in Minnesota and promised payment that never materialized.

    Our friend Ryan Lankford, who is based in Iowa, has been instrumental in reporting on the matter. Following the situation closely, Lankford reports that Mason was recently dealt another blow in his attempts to remain a promoter. Apparently Toad Holler, the club where Mason ran a weekly fight promotion in Des Moines, Iowa, has closed their doors to him.

    According to Lankford, "Toad Holler's management has taken over Mason's weekly Fight Club promotion. They moved the event from Wednesday to Friday, lowered the door charge from $10 to $7, and even stopped charging the fighters the door charge (yes, Chad actually charged the "entertainment" for the right to entertain!) Toad's regular stable of amateurs will still be fighting there, only it won't be benefitting Chad Mason."

    This really is outrageous behaviour.

    Dan, I more than sympathise with you. What a knob that guy is.

    Sounds like that's why God invented lawyers.

    Or small claims court.

    Lankford's a good soure, he keeps in good contact with the DMEF guys. From everything I've heard, the report's spot-on and it looks like Mason might be back on his to Omaha or CB again. Who knows where he'll end up.

    There's only one legit promoter in that area if you ask me, and that's Jay Schneider.
