The Incredible Expanding UFC 130 Post Part 2

Brian Stann wasn’t the only Real American Hero™ in the building last night:

He also mentioned that members of the “SEAL Team 6″, the group that took out Osama Bin Laden, was in the crowd to watch the night of fights.

Here’s some more info on that Travis Browne post-fight dedication that had him all weepy:

Browne wanted to and did dedicate his victory to one of his best friends’ dad. When Browne fell on hard times, his buddy’s family took him in, unofficially adopting him. It obviously had a tremendous impact on Browne, who was near tears again as he recounted the story at the UFC 130 postfight press conference.

His friend’s father has been struggling with a condition called neuropathy, which leaves him in a constant state of pain. Browne can’t stop the pain, but being able to dedicate his victory to a man that has helped him so much, obviously meant a lot to him.

Rampage Jackson builds his entire post fight interview around how he doesn’t like Ariel Helwani. It’s all in good fun … maybe.

Dana White’s got some big plans for The Ultimate Fighter:

White also revealed his dream for the future of TUF. While discussing international destinations for the show like the Philippines, White said he like to hold a season with 16 different TUF’s in locations around the world. The UFC would close out the season by holding a TUF World Cup with the 16 winners.

    I could watch Rampage and Helwani all day long. Funny stuff.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Man, my Mom’s got neuropathy as well.  I know how helpless that dude feels.  Glad he got the win and in such career-making fashion.

    Does Esther ever fail to impress?  Man those are better than the actual PPV.
