Meeting The Champ


Last month, I had the opportunity to meet Cain Velasquez.  If you're not familiar with the guy, he's the current UFC Heavyweight Champion and tonight he'll be defending his title against Antonio Silva at UFC 160.

He trains less than 2 miles away from my doorstep over at the American Kickboxing Academy with several other UFC fighters.

My buddy was in town and wanted to have him sign a pair of UFC gloves, so I went out there with him.  We waited around a couple of hours, but it paid off.  Velasquez was a really nice guy and even personalized my photo.

Best of luck Mr. Velasquez!  Happy Saturday and sayonara!
