    Is Bill Burr cool in person? I would totally chill with him.

    I met a bunch of stars at USO tours in Iraq but probably the GOAT was Olly North. I ran up and kneeled in front of him like Vader and was like, "What is thy bidding, my master." He said "Get up idiot." and shook my hand. Lol

    He is insanely awesome. Cool as shit and a nice, polite guy. I highly recommend seeing a live performance of his.

    I literally ran into Betty White as a little kid at the airport and fell down. I was running around and then she helped me find my parents

    Prince Charles, David Bowie, Mickey Ward. That's about it. Bowie was a nice guy but I was a star struck kid and was too nervous to have a meaningful chat with him. Met Ward in Lowell shortly after his come from behind KO over Alphonso Sanchez. Nice, polite, low-key guy. You'd never guess he could turn out your lights with one liver shot.

    Haven't met many. Walked past Tyson Fury in the street and he nearly bumped into me. At his size, he would have flattened me.

    In MMA, I've met Dan Hardy and Damian Maia. Both very polite and pleasant guys.

    Cool. I was a sparring partner for Haugan back in the '90s. Very nice guy & he's got a hell of a sense of humor as well.

    Oh shit, I know what I would have asked North. "Why did you think taking a bible, crucifix, and chocolate cake as presents for the ayatollah khomeini, was a good idea when you sold weapons to our enemy?".


    Yup he actually did that (I believe it was him) when he traveled to Iran to make a deal for the sale of missiles.

    I’ve been with the Graciefighter team for 22 years. So, I’ve met and trained with all the big names. One funny picture was after Nate beat Conor. He was at an autograph signing in San Francisco. It was a mob scene. Nathan told me to stand behind him and look tough.
    So, a kindergarten teacher was body guarding Nate. I’m in the hat.

    Frank was surrounded by six huge guidos. He was sitting at the head of the table, playing baccarat at a casion.
    I sat in for a few hands and at one point he said, "Nice hand, kid. Where you from?" That was it.

    Rode the elevator with Robin and his then wife later that night at the same casino. We didn't say a word though. I would sneak a look and then look away,
    so he started imitating me, sneaking a look at me and then looking away when I saw him. Typical, funny mime shit.
