    Really nice guy. Was here in Hamilton for a meet and greet. I told him, he's my 12 year old sister's favourite fighter, so he grabbed a picture and autographed it and wrote a nice little personalized message for her, even though he didn't have to. It made my sister's day when I gave it to her. Very nice guy. I also told him Shogun is my favourite fighter, and he said he's a Shogun fan too, "Shogun is dope". :)

    All in all, it was a great experience meeting him.

    We're going to need pics of you, Rashad, your little sister and a flyer for the meet and greet or it never happened.

    I've always felt like Rashad is one of those fighters who is a really nice guy in person even though he has kinda bad rep and is boo'd a lot for no reason.

    He's not boo'd for "no reason". Maybe reasons you don't agree with but that doesn't mean they're not reasons.

    Yeah, he had just come from a 2 hour meet and greet and one hour drive too, plus he'd been doing this for another hour here. So I could've understood if he was tired and wanted to hurry it up. But no such thing, he took his time, talked to me, grabbed me before I could leave to get my sister an autographed photo. Usually, its just "To: Showman + his signature". But he's like wait, let me write something for her and wrote a nice little message.

    Naw, I agree with the other poster. It really is no reason to boo him. I mean...second season of TUF and grabbing his nuts against Forrest?

    Nah, wearing a t-shirt and jeans. Had a nice winter coat though, since it was freezing outside.
