Great last 4 days with all the stuff we have been doing within world of MMA. All last week Dave and I put in a ton of consultation and work with a new fight league and their star fighter(s). The league will be holding a press conference today. The business partnerships with these organizations and their fighters have worked out better then I ever imagined possible. Our MMA involvement has grown to the point now where we will probably be hiring 1-2 more people at Shoemoney in the near future just to manage some of these relationships (please don’t start sending in inquiries yet… I will post if/when we have positions open).
Anyway UFC77 was a really awesome event. Seeing these fights outside Las Vegas is SUCH a better experience. I won all the fights I bet on also which made it even sweeter.
Those of you into the world of Mixed Martial Arts might recognize some of these people-
From Friday nights party:
UFC ref Big John McCarthy
Kenny THE FINISHER Florian (i love this guy… he is so down to earth)
