    I saw the photo this week and thought it was funny, but I thought they were joking around on purpose. Reading Dos Santos description of what happened, makes the photo hilarious.

    That’s when things got weird.

    “This photographer (the UFC) took there, I don’t know when they found him,” dos Santos said. “I guess he doesn’t have much experience with the fight business because he asked me to hold the baby kangaroo and then asked Tai Tuivasa to hug me [laughs]. I was like, what the f*ck is this? [laughs] He wanted to take a family photo.

    ”To make it worse, I look like a mom holding a baby [laughs]. I didn’t see that coming, but everyone had a good laugh about it. That helped the tense atmosphere go away. The photographer helped break the ice a little bit [laughs].”

    On the following day, dos Santos and Tuivasa faced off for the first time after the open workouts. They both tried to look serious and help promote the card, but ended up laughing again.

    “(Tuivasa) said he couldn’t stop remembering the baby kangaroo,” dos Santos said, laughing. “We were facing off, trying to look mean. The staredown is important, that’s when you feel your opponent, looking him in the eyes, it gets tense, but then he said he could only think about the baby kangaroo and I laughed.”

    Hilarious

    Can never not like Two Santos.

    He's such a cool dude.

    Dirty Shoe Drinker Tuivasa has grown on me as well.

    I also think junior may be on something, look at the size of him.

    So much positivity!
    This is how MMA should be!
    This is also what I liked about K-1: be friendly before the fight, beat the f++ out of each other in the ring, be friendly afterwards again.

    And if a genuine rivalry arises or if a genuine grudgematch comes up they can mention that. But there's no need to fabricate that BS.

    Hunto talked about a time in his book when him and the K1 finalists went out drinking and some guys didn't know who they were and started trouble with thier group. Talk about the worst group of people you could ever pick a fight with

    Kurt Osiander told me about a time that he, BJ Penn, Dave Camarillo, and a bunch of other killers got in to a fight at a strip club.
