    Both are super nice guys. Especially Alan. I felt bad for him because most of the people at the event were fucking Rednecks(Art of War 4). When he got into the cage to talk to the crowd no one really knew who he was.

    He and his girlfriend were about to come into the sports bar upstairs at the Casino but turned and walked away. So I went out and kinda yelled at him(we were about 50 feet away) and held up my camera. He laughed and walked back to me. He was really personable. But no one else knew who he was.... He and his girlfriend were really hungry and the bar was packed so they decided not to even try to go in.

    I was a little more drunk when Ricco made it out(and he is looking way slimmer too). He put up with my drunken rambling about how he should go beat Nogs ass in the cage with class. I was sloshed and he seemed tired but he was still really polite and did pictures.

    Then security threatened to take my camera away because we were in the casino floor :(

    Nasal lost :( I don't know what happened. After his last KO loss he seemed like he didn't want to get hit. He fought a guy that was really strong and had "black belt level grappling". Nasal just kept shooting and getting stuff and pulling guard but could never do anything with it. He got TKOed in the 3rd. He just didn't fight with intensity like he did against Javiar. It was sad to watch. He told me later that the guy was (and you have to imagine it with the accent) "So so strong and great gward. his gward was really strong" Ha, I love his accent.

    At the bar I went to buy a beer and he charged me 4.50. I almost gave the beer back! Then I saw these for 15 bucks. Fuckin' right.

    They also had dancers(not strippers) that were in all four corners of the room up high to keep the crowd entertained between fights. And entertain they did. They could DANCE.

    Me and one of my instructors. He owns the school.

    As the night went on I just got drunker and goofier looking.

    Fun night with some good fights.
     
  2. It's not safe to get that close to Ricco's mouth when it's open.
