I met Rolles Gracie. He's a monster and it would be great if he made it to the UFC. Nice guy, for sure. Some of the guys here in Beijing went and partied with Bas Rutten and a bunch of UFC guys after AOW 12. Unfortunately the group I was with didn't make it there. :(
Anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices.

Yes, he can be a bit standoffish at times, but after you get past his normal social defensiveness he's a nice, gracious dude.
He ALWAYS seems to be friendly to any attractive females on the mat, though.
I hope you get a chance to roll with him; he gives you a chance to work.

Have had a couple of run ins with "Crazy" Tim Credeuer. He truley lives up to the name. Used to train with Alan Belcher. Met Sokogu, Andre Galvao, Manny Gamburiaun, and Rickson at the Mundials in 2007. Did a seminar at Tims school with Forrest, biggest 205'er out there. Also met Big Nog, Travis Lutter, and Guy Mesager in Dallas, another huge man. Also "Razor" Rob, Jorge Grugel, Sean Sherk and Rich Franklin at fights around town. Every single one of them were very humble. And yes I agree with the guy from TUF Big Nog is like a big teddy bear.
Oh yeah Rich Clemettie to but he was a dick.

I met Pete Spratt today at a gas station. I acted like a little girl meeting Hanna Montana. Just said hello and that I liked his fights. His arms look like anacondas.

Not UFC, but I met Jake Shields on the street when he opened up his new gym. I didn't know who he was at the time, and he told me to Google him up, so I did. He taught the even classes, but I was busy, so I never trained with him. Did take classes with the owner, Jason Manly, though, who was another Cesar student and has one MMA fight.
