Dana White continues to prove that ask, and ye shall receive. Above, he agrees to let a fan from the Q&A session put the strap on Georges St Pierre if he wins tonight. Dana has a long history of accommodating Q&A fans, and they’ve quickly learned they can get more than just a hug from him:
In front of family, friends and fight fans, Justin and Deanna Peacock were married at 9 a.m. inside the famed Ultimate Fighting Championship octagon just 36 hours before more than 55,000 fans were going to pack the Rogers Centre for UFC 129.
The couple met at a fan event. Their first date was UFC 97 in Montreal two years ago and they’ve attended every Canadian event since.
UFC president Dana White gets bombarded with requests from fans each time he does a public Q&A. At a recent event, Peacock asked White if they could get married in the octagon. Absolutely, said White. The Hamilton couple kept in touch with the company, and with UFC 129 taking place so close to Hamilton, the date was set.
No word on if Lenne Hardt performed the wedding call or not.
