got a chance to meet denis kang last night

hi,

Long time reader, first time poster:
I met Denis Kang at an mma gym last night. He was extremely humble and down to earth- just an overall cool guy. He was teaching a BJJ class and helped everyone regardless of skill level. I got a chance to ask him if a fight with Paulo Filho has been finalized (he replied no). He said he wants to fight filho very much and that if it does happen he will keep it standing. If it goes to the ground, he isn't worried at all because he feels he can hang with Filho just fine. He's going to teach again on Wednesday so I'll ask him a few more questions then. Personally I think he can take Filho since Denis is never still on the ground. He's extremely intense and got this aggresive mentality for fighting: if hes in a precarious position he will not lay there, and if hes on top he will work for a finish- just constantly attacking his opponent. Very explosive on the ground, and very technical. This is just my opinion though so take it for what it is. Just thought I'd like to share since everyone seems to post up their fighter meeting experiences.

ask him what his current contract situation is with Pride
ask him what he thinks of the Zuffa acquisition and how will it affect him
also ask him what he thinks of the Bodog/EliteXC/K-1 alliance and if he's interested in other offers
