I am always seeing different types of pictures on twitter of fighters and stuff so I thought I would start a thread where we could put them.

Here's one of the UFC press conference setup, pretty interesting place to do a press conference!

UFC 137 presser starts in less than two hours at the Brooklyn Bridge - here's the setup @NYNYVegas

"“All of a sudden, he was shooting for a takedown, and I’m like, ‘Oh, you’re a wrestler now? Remember, I’m the black belt in jiu-jitsu. And you’re shooting on me now? This is a wrap." - Nate Diaz"

@poir420. that press conference is taking place on the replica of the brooklyn bridge in front of the new york//new york hotel casino and resort. in your first picture you can see the statue of liberty in the background and if your picture went higher you could see the roller coaster  on top of the casino. i have been on that ride and its fun. it even has a  360 loop in it.

Also Renato Laranja is the man. Anyone with twitter should follow that guy.
