    Hey guys, shoulda mention it sooner but last wednesday Renzo Gracie & Diego Sanchez came to the local mma show up here in alaska (yes alaska). Renzo's a really cool guy, got his autograph. I didnt really get to meet Diego just got to shake his hand, but my buddies were telling me that he was being a dick when he was giving out autographs. Sorry I dont have any pics though, just thought I should share this with you guys.

    That is cool. What was he doing that made him a dick? He seems quite an arrogant character, laid back yet extremely confident. I don't think it was his TUF success that made him like that, he just seems like one of those guys.

    Diego was a dick before he was famous. He threw a sissy-fit when he lost to Popovich in Texas.

    Renzo is a real nice guy also. He is quite confident in his good looks however.
