Nice to see Lapsley in action again, I wonder why he wasn't involved in the tournament? He's better than most of the guys in the 170 lb. bracket.

Yeah he's tough.

Eddie Sanchez = All Ego.

I met him at an autograph signing for the current UFC book back in December in Costa Mesa, California. It was right after his loss at UFC Fight For The Troops and the guy was basically a jerk.

Maybe he was being a jerk because he just loss.

I mean I doubt that would put him in a good mood.

But I hear what you're saying...these guys are professional. They need to always act that way. Especially when dealing with the fans. There is no excuse to be negative to the people who are keeping you in a job.
