Jimmy Boogaloo,

I want to change one of my answers.

You asked "What single show sticks out in your mind as the best that you have attended"

Answer: The IFC`s $50,000 Global Domination Lt Heavyweight Tournament held in Denver Colorado at the Pepsi Center in 2003.

The fighters were....

Trevor Prangley,Forrest Griffin,Mikail Avetisyan,Babalu,Eric Wanderley,Shogun,Jeremy Horn & Chael Sonnen.

Babalu beat Jeremy Horn in the finals to win the $50,000 and the belt.Chuck Liddell was there to hand over the belt that he vacated.

I met so many fighters that show.I even met announcer/commentator Big Poppa Schnake.

I was the fighter wrangler that night meaning that I escorted all of the fighters from the locker room to where they walk out.
poppa Schnake was my buddy and actually crashed at my place few weeks before he passed..IMHO the most underrated announcer ever..
I was Unbeaten every time he called me to the cage 14-0 I believe I recall, and he was always brought in to do our Local shows and KOTC sometimes.. he was one of the funniest down to earth ppl I've ever known..I got some funny ass stories involving him.. He use to pull Ring girls and even took one back to his storage unit he kept his shit in when he was on the road for months at a time and was even caught by the Storage manager and asked to take his things else where lol.. He e proud of that and didn't get an eye..... Was def 1 of a kind and that man could live out of a Neon and work non stop having a show every weekend constantly grinding.. Miss that fella..

I know. IMO, we were both equally there.
You were at this event? There was a ton of killers in this card and Cole Miller prior to his ufc career as well.. This event is where Mike Brown coined me the MMA ENCYCLOPEDIA lol
