I've seen Pat Militech and there was a herd of noobs crowding around him for autographs.

If you're thinking of the Draka event, it was 1998

Luta Livre flees the fight,

Beware my power... Blue Lantern's light!

Where the UFC fighters you met nice? Which UFC fighters are actually jerks in person?
Royce Gracie. I was invited to a BJJ seminar held my Eddie Kone in London. Royce was an absolute Gentleman and after the rolling, took care to sign his autograph and allowed everyone to take a pic with him. Top Man. Eddie is excellent to train under as well - if only I could find the time...
Saw Josh Koscheck, Michael Bisping and others in London SENI 2007 signing autographs. Dan Henderson was in a clothing stand trying to put on some trousers, whilst not trying to attract attention as he did so. All seemed very personable. Lots of smiles and photos.

I met Coleman when he was the champ about 11 or 12 years ago and Randelman right when he started fighting.
Grey Maynard went to St. Eds and we usually practiced with them once or twice a year when I wrestled in hs. I was a year behind him. I never rolled with him though.
I wrestled with Frankie Edgar my freshman year in college (which was his freshman year as well) before I transfered out. He's a good dude.
So two of them weren't fighters when i knew them.

Mike Swick. We hosted one of his seminars. Very nice, humble guy.

Very nice guy and all his theatrics are for show. Held target mitts for him and the force from his right hook damn near ripped my shoulder off.
