I went to school with George Sotiropoulos though I don't remember him from there; he was in year 12 when I was in year 7.

I trained in the same school as John "doomsday" Howard for a while. Rolled with him once, my arm still clicks from time to time (true...he got me so quick, I yelled instead of tapping...fail). We did a couple of rounds stand up, and it was all right, but that was before he trained years of muay thai at WaiKru in Boston. He'd pound me into ****, in a hurry now. I was never any good, so it wasn't as though it went well for me then.
Good guy. great attitude, and trains reeeeeeeeeeeeally hard.

Oh, I forgot that I met Carlos Newton at a comic convention once, he was doing some advertising for the IFL when it was still around. Got some postcards signed, he was pretty cool.

Where the UFC fighters you met nice? Which UFC fighters are actually jerks in person?
I train under/with matt arroyo quite often, I've drilled with allan berube, shane primm, and cory hill (the guy who broke his foot kicking) Cory hill is a crazy masochist but awsome lol.
I've also met royce gracie at a semimar and shook his hand afterwards.

i met Chris Lytle at a seminar. he is a great guy. seems like a very hard working guy in and out of the cage. He stuck around and anwsered questions and it was a great experience.

I met Jeremy Horne, Pat Militich, and Tim Sylvia at a bar the night before one of Matt Hughes' title defenses. They were all really nice but this was back before UFC was huge and me and my 3 boys were the only ones who actually recognized them. Tim Sylvia drinks bitch beer(Smirnoff ice), experts are speculating this may have had something to do with his first round KO loss to Ray Mercer :).
Also i train with Hermes Franca (he is a super nice guy and his son is a riot!) I have met Tito twice and he was equally dickish both times. Matt Hammel is the nicest guy in the world, my GF asked him to sign her boobs and he looked at me and asked if i was ok with it. Jeff monson, Yves edwards, Kieth Jardine, Randy. I am sure there are a few i am forgetting but i have been following the sport since the old days. Oh yeah I men Jason Macdonald, and the tall Hawain kid who was an ass too...cant think of his name. Oh and Ed Herman.
