I was born in New Orleans and lived about 50 minutes below New Orleans for the first 17 years of my life. The town I grew up in is my screen name. Great place to grow up. No red lights, no chain fast food joints just a small town where fishing and oil field are the two main industries. Great place to grow up if you are a hunter or fisherman. Unfortunately Hurricane Katrina changed much of the landscape. I moved to Lafayette Louisiana in 87 and have basically been here ever since. I currently reside in Broussard Louisiana with my wife and two daughters. I am 41 years old and I am the head football coach at a 4A high school. I have never trained and consider myself a fan who has been to 3 events in Vegas and I rent a ppv monthly. Favorite fighters are Matt, Chuck, Rich and Evan Tanner (RIP)

Hi-dilly-ho! I'm Chuck from Florida. I'm bald, drive a crotch-rocket & sleep in the same bed as my pet boa contrictor!

Which three events did you go to?

I have also been to three UFC events...UFC 70 in Manchester and UFC 85 and UFC 120 both in London...and the first british Fan Expo too where I met Rich Franklin....let me tell you now, he does not dissapoint

I'm sorry about the hurricane

I went to 51, 61 and 100. My wife actually sent me and a buddy of mine to 100 as my 40th birthday present. (God Bless her what was she thiking. j/k) Our family lost everything in the hurricane but we did not lose any family members which is what matters most. I actually met all four of my favorite fighters at one event or another and all of them are great guys.

We sure do pal. Matt and Chuck were friendly and I probably spent the most time talking to Franklin. Tanner was real down to earth and genuine. Have to go coach a football game.(not your type of football) Talk to you later.

you mean American Football, where they hold a ball like in rugby and wear funny masks

Yes...Franklin is quite talkative, I found that also. It helpped because I email him a bit, and he recognised me from a video I sent him

Its a small world isnt it
