DAN FREAKIN HENDERSON!!! UFC Fighter, if you didn't know, now you know!!! I am soooo ridiculously excited. Okay, this is how it all went down. I was at my dad's house attempting to prepare for the estate sale we are having this weekend and I decided to stop at Chipotle's in Escondido on my way back home. I went in and ordered our food and as I was walking out the door to sit down outside, one of the other guys in the restaurant (a thugged out mexican guy) went over to one of the tables with two white guys and asked, "Are you Dan Henderson?" and shook the guy's hand. I knew instantly who Dan Henderson was and so I stopped in my tracks and listened for a moment. I then stepped outside and watched in the restaurant while they took some photos. I couldn't help myself. I, of course, happened to leave my camra at my dad's house but low and behold the cell phone camera. I whipped it out, marched back in there and introduced myself.
It was kinda nerve racking but he seemed like a nice guy. I told him that I had just seen the UFC 100 rerun on Spike last Saturday and LOVED the fact that he knocked Bisping out!! YEAH BABY!!! It was a great fight and I told him that I liked how he used the ring to shut Bisping up. Bisping talked a lot of trash during The Ulitmate FIghter where they each coached opposing teams. He said that he hasn't heard much trash talking from Bisping since the fight! haha!
He also signed an autograph for Taylor on a McDonald's receipt! How nice is that? The poor guy got swarmed and he was probably just trying to enjoy his food. It did look like he was mostly finished by the time I saw him, which is good. If only he knew how great it was to meet someone who has such AWESOME physical strength and stamina. Wow! Even if you don't like cage fighting, you have to admit that the training these guys go through is unbelieveable.
Okay, I just had to share! I am all star struck but at least not speechless. Needless to say I am kinda giddy and don't even want to eat my burrito bowl! Maybe this will be my new appitite suppressant...meeting UFC fighters! LOL! Maybe I should move to Vegas now, since it seems like a lot of them train there. Haha!!!
Vegas and a skinny body, here I come!! LOL!!!
