Meeting Wanderlei Silva in Las Vegas

You will probably have been aware that no new posts have been added for the last few days and this is because I have just spent the last five in Las Vegas.

Staying at the MGM Grand, I have to say that it was amazing. Being my first trip to America as well as Vegas I have to say that the place is great and the people are so friendly with an overall terrific atmosphere.

We arrived on the 24th, the night of UFC 84 which so happened to be at the MGM (what a coincidence, I told my wife).

Unfortunately though due to a delayed connect flight from Phoenix to Vegas we missed the event and checked in just as everyone was leaving the hotel so as you can imagine the place was very chaotic.

I did get a chance to meet Wanderlei Silva though. Although it was for a few seconds, it was clear that he is a friendly celebrity who does not mind meeting and greeting his fans, as the mass of people wanting to get there picture taken with him didn’t seem to bother him in any way. Well done to him for his victory over Keith Jardine and well done also to BJ Penn and Lyoto Machida.
