    This is really interesting, Ishe Smith former 154lbs champ when to high school with Gray Maynard and then ended up meeting Dana White in the mid 90's before the UFC. Crazy how all their paths intersected together when you think of it. What are the chances these guys would all know each other like that?

    Dana used to train with Jeff Mayweather before he went to Boston and became a boxercise instructor. So, he and some boxers who've trained in the LV area go way back. Including Floyd

    I thought he was part of Mayweather Promotions? If Floyd is serious about getting into the MMA business he might as well stay with them.

    Yeah I know but the consensus was that tito was going to severely beat him so bad that he didn't even show up.
