    I was at that HC-MMA event friday night.

    It was well run and the fights were good. Lots of guys from Revolution and I'm pretty sure all their fighters won. :coold:

    We should do a Van meet, I don't care who's dick I gotta suck, but there is no way in hell I'm missing that event. I know the view will suck, I'll be surrounded by thousands of douches who will want to pick a fight, but it'll be awesome to just be there live. :hs:

    Nah

    They're still aiming for June. Dana confirmed it to the Canadian Press during the last UFC.

    Here's what the Vancouver City Councillors said.

    There were a couple of angry letters to the editor regarding the MMA events in today's Vancouver Sun.

    One guy said to 'take the sport back into the jungle.'.

    I'm going to put in a ban request at the front desk, brb.
