UFC 79: Live from Vegas…

Sorry for the lack of updates. My wife and I arrived in Vegas yesterday and we’re staying at the Mandalay Bay. It’s an amazing hotel. Much better than the total dives that I’ve become accustomed over the years.

Not much news to report yet because some loser sitting behind my wife and I on the plane was coughing on us the entire time. We both were violently ill for much of Thursday and are just now bouncing back.

My wife did go down to the spa earlier this morning and saw a bunch of fighters hanging out trying to cut weight for the weigh-ins later today. She for sure saw Tony DeSouza and Melvin Guillard. Guillard had an entourage and was wearing a fur coat.

The weigh-ins start at 4 p.m. PT. I plan on heading down there for them and then coming back up to the room for a report. Then, it will be over to the Riviera for the IFO and “Fireworks in the Cage.”

Sorry that I don’t have better inside dirt for you guys yet, but now that I am feeling like a human being again, I should be able to go out and about and see some things.

    “Guillard had an entourage and was wearing a fur coat.”

    What a dill.

  • Sam Caplan says:

    Well, it’s pretty cold in Vegas right now. About 35 degrees. So maybe the fur coat has practical purposes?

  • Evan says:

    entourage and fur coat screams boxing. But hey…I don’t have a problem with it, kind of amusing nonetheless. Guess the cocaine issue hasn’t humbled him whatsoever!

  • Drewdoodoo says:

    My money says there is cocaine somewhere in that entourage and/or that fur coat.

  • Rashad #1 says:

    Why is Melvin at the spa cutting weight? He should have just partyed for a week.. sure way to lose weight the shit that he’s doing

  • Evan says:

    Hey Sam do you know if Tito is cornering him?

  • YoBMC says:

    Thanks for the update Sammy…hope you a 100% by tomorrow bro

  • Paul Balsom says:

    Expect nothing less for Melvin… I bet he’s wearing some huge ladies designer shades too…

  • Adam Morgan says:

    35 degrees in Vegas? WTF?

  • Brent says:

    Take lots of pics for the blog!

  • Sam Caplan says:

    Brent, my wife took some pics. We don’t have a USB cable for the camera here in Vegas but we’ll be posting them when I get back.

    Adam, yeah bro, it’s cold as hell here! At least it’s sunny though. I keep hearing it’s raining in Philly.

    YoBMC, thanks for the well wishes.

    Evan, I can’t say for certain whether Tito will be cornering Melvin but I’ve seen no sign of him. He wasn’t at the weigh-ins.

    Sam hope you and your wife are having a helluva good time!
