Well, I survived our trip to Vegas. Ashlee and I went out there on Friday to broadcast from the UFC Fan Expo. It was amazing. We flew out Friday morning and Ashlee and I were like two best girlfriends. She let me borrow her US Weekly with the Bachelorette on the cover. Had to read it. Am I really going to the UFC right now? Anyway, the Expo was dope. Every fighter you could imagine was there. Having Brandon Vera on our show was huge. All the fighters came over and wanted to talk. It was so cool. At one point I thought we were gonna have some issues. Jon Jones came over and him and Brandon have fought before. I guess they aren't the best of friends. Well, Ashlee starts calling Jones over and telling him how much she loves him. I could see Brandon's face just change. Uh oh. But it was cool. I would have loved to have seen an impromptu cage match right there! All the fighters were super cool. At one point I was using the bathroom backstage and Chuck Liddell, BJ Penn and Matt Hughes were all back there talking. It was like a Mt.Rushmore of the UFC. Amazing! Then the fights on Saturday...wow! I don't even know what to say. The whole card was great. But the only thing anyone can talk about was the main event. It was like when Mike Tyson lost. I was stunned. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I have seen Anderson Silva clown opponents before, and it works for him. But this is different. Chris Weidman is legit. And he proved it. I almost felt like Silva was bored and just wanted to lose to change it up. Not sure. It didn't make sense for him to fight like that. I still can't believe I was there to witness it. Here are some pics from the weekend...
The Luxor. What a trippy hotel! Gave me vertigo.
Me and Brandon ran into the champ!
We had pretty good seats for the fights. I got there as soon as the doors opened.
