Hope you guys are enjoying your New Year, I know we have been. We are writing from sunny Las Vegas right now preparing for UFC 108. We covered the free open to public Weigh-ins yesterday (Jan. 1st 2010) which also included a free signing from UFC stars: Rich “Ace” Franklin, Antonio “Nog” Noguera, Roy “Big Country” Nelson, Stephan “The American Psycho” Bonnar, Forrest Griffin, Joe “Daddy” Stevenson and the welterweight champ George “Rush” St. Pierre. We were quite ecstatic to say the least that the UFC started 2010 off with this present to the fans.
All the fighters were very nice. Even after hours of shaking hands and signing, they still took their time, and exchanged a few words with each of us. George St. Pierre whom stole most the attention of the fans was really a great sport about all the thousands of fans flashing pictures in his face (sorry, I’m guilty), signing autographs for a line that circled around the MGM garden, and taking as many pictures with fans as physically possible before having to go for the weigh-ins.
