Last week, Audra and I went to Las Vegas. I had to partake in the UFC Fighters’ Summit. Once a year the UFC gets all the fighters together and talks about PR, health insurance, and other stuff. This is a 2-day long event, some is interesting and other stuff, like taxes and traveling, is pretty boring. The one thing I did find out is the UFC is now going to supply health insurance for all fighters. This is health insurance that will cover accidents, training, and also fight days. I think it’s a pretty big step for the UFC and I don’t know how this doesn’t make the front page of Yahoo News. So, all in all, Audra and I had a great time. She got to spend some time with the Stellas (if you remember we had a prayer request for Bobby Stella and her cancer) and we also got to eat at our favorite restaurant, Lucille’s. I actually had a fun time at the summits, I sat between Sean Sherk and BJ Penn, so we were able to jack around a little bit. It wasn’t all that serious at our table. There’s actually a really short video of us on BJPenn.com if you wanted to check that out.
Well, as I was out in Vegas with the UFC, Mark caught a break in the weather and was able to get some corn in the ground. If you want to see a few pictures of that, then you can click here.
All in all a pretty slow week. Except for the trip to Vegas, I’ve just been doing some light training, nothing heavy yet.
