UFC 137 hits New York, New York
What a menagerie of fighters for UFC 137. Check out Roy Nelson in a suit and tie and a monster beard that looks like he stapled a goat to his chin. And a surprisingly good-natured Nick Diaz. I’m thinking it’s no coincidence that the pre-fight press conference was held at the New York, New York Hotel in Vegas, a not so subtle reminder that New York still hasn’t legalized MMA. You also have to give Dana White a hand for being the “people’s owner.” No other boss of a major sports organization has the kind of rapport with the fans as he does. He’s like an MMA Make A Wish Foundation.
