And again you are correct in saying, this guy is someone that I want my son's to know, to learn from and to be like, if they turn out to be half the person that Matt and Mark are then yes that will be a very good thing. This weekend was something that I will not only remember and cherish as one of the best times that I have ever had in my life, I not only got to be beside a icon in something that my boys and I have enjoyed watching,(UFC) for many years together, and thinking what it would be like to sit ringside, rubbing elbow's with the fighters, hanging out with them, something I always thought was only a dream, a fantasy, it has ran thru my mind so many times, but this weekend it came true, because a man that not only I , but millions of people have watched fight so many times included me in every aspect of him being bestowed the highest honor of the UFC, the hall of fame, and Boomer you know it like I do, it would have been easy for him to just worry about himself this weekend, but what did he worry about, what was important to him, the reason I say this is Boomer knows its true, what mattered to Matt, was is Tommy, Boomer, Matt Pena, Robbie, and yes, me, was we OK. When we was rushing thru the fan Expo,(Boomer you lie, that person wasn't crippled till after I pushed them over)Matt's only worry was, are we getting took care of, are we still behind him, he was always looking back to see if we was all OK. The One More Round booth, Matt wanted his people to be took care of because we was going to represent them at the fights that night, we came first, I have to thank the people at One More Round, they was great, and everyone that reads this, please, support OMR, they are great and have the best stuff around.
Then it was on to the fights that night, well we had to do dinner, and let me tell you that was one great meal, and again Boomer thanks because he pulled a fast one and took care of the check, pretty slick my friend, then we get to the fights, again Matt was concerned about our seats, he wasn't sure where they was, so he had people making sure they was good seats, and let me tell you, and Boomer can tell you, we had the best seats in the house, no doubt about it. And yes I was like a kid in a candy store, I could go on all night but it is getting late and I have to help my other Hall of Fame Buddy in the morning get stuff done on the farm. One more thing before I end this and go to bed, Robbie Lawlar, I am convinced that one day that that honor will be bestowed on you to my friend, thanks for letting me hang with you this weekend too, Matt Pena, what can I say about this man, what he brings to his fighters, puts them on a level that is 2 steps above the rest, Mr. Pena job well done, and I am honored to consider you a friend. Boomer, I have yet to find the right words for you my friend, someday I hope too, and one I do, well just let me say, Thank you, not just from me, but from all of us, they broke the mold when they made you Buddy.Matt Hughes, you have gave me something that I will remember for the rest of my life, and another story, that I will tell again and agian.
Awesome add on Danny!! You can wear my contacts any day!!

Thanks for the tale Boomer and Silverback...I haven't been around much either, but I was watching faithfully--from my seat at a Tilted Kilt outside Chicago--the place went crazy when they showed Matt.
