PFC, Affliction, & WEC!

Wow, it’s been forever since I’ve blogged and if you can tell from my BeenUp2 I’ve been traveling a lot. I live my life so sporadically I love it!

After I spent almost two weeks in Stockton, I went to the Palace Fighting Championships with my cousins Roger and Jay. Dustin Akbari and Tito Jones from Ultimate Fitness were fighting on the card so you know I was rooting for them. Normally Urijah would be there cornering, but he was getting ready for his WEC re-match fight against Jens Pulver. As soon as we got there Dustin was fighting and he lost his fight. Tito won his fight and was looking mighty sexy in his fight shorts haha.

It was nice to have my family around watching the fight. I wish I could bring them to every single event that I go to. Roger always tells me he’ll carry my suitcase lol.

Tracy and I stayed at the hotel and was on our way to Anaheim for Affliction the next day. We didn’t want to miss weigh ins. Tracy is the hardest working woman I know. She had me drive while she was on her computer editing and uploading pictures to As soon as we got to the Double Tree in Anaheim we went to Chris Palmquist’s room from to say Hi right before we went to weigh ins.

Affliction’s weigh ins were the longest weigh ins I’ve ever been to. I think it lasted an hour an half and I’m used to them being less than 30 minutes long. The good thing was that while we were waiting at weigh ins, they were throwing out Affliction shirts. So I grabbed a few for some of my friends. Dru and Jane were at weigh-ins too which made the event much funner cause I’m telling you it dragged on…

After weigh ins I headed home to Hollywood with Dru and Jane and we picked up Jaycee for a night out on the town and ended up partying at Les Deux. That was my first night home two weeks. It was nice to sleep in my bed.

The day of the Affliction fight I headed straight to the Honda Center to meet up with Tracy and Krista. The moment I got into the arena I was upset because I missed the Nogueira vs Matyushenko fight. Why would they show a fight like that so early? Anyway, the arena wasn’t packed there were still a lot of empty seats by the time I was watching the Dan Lauzon fight. Needless to say during each fight they were throwing out t-shirts and I caught three of them haha. I caught two larges and a XXL and gave the XXL to the guy sitting next to us. I was sitting with Ken Pavia and Krista and got to see a whole lot of people we knew from where our seats were.

I really enjoyed the Affliction fights. By far the best night of fights I’ve ever been to and you all know I’ve been to a lot 🙂 There were just a lot of A-List fighters on the card with great finishes. I couldn’t believe they didn’t broadcast Jay Heiron’s fight… his KO was insane! I was very happy for him.

The afterpartying is always fun too. I happy cause Dru and Jane got to come along with Tracy and I and it’s nice to have friends around during the fight afterpartying. We hit three clubs and right now I can’t think of them cause it was two weeks ago haha. At the Hitman Fightgear afterparty for Babalu DJ Turbulence was deejaying and he is the homie haha. Him and Marco were there and I was excited because here are friends that I see partying in LA all the time and Turb was deejaying at a fight afterparty.

After the clubs we went back to the hotel and chilled in the lobby to watch everybody come back to the hotel drunk. It’s always quite entertaining… trust me haha! On our way up to Babalu and Apple’s suite party we ran into Paul Buentello in the elevator. He quickly noticed me and picked me up and gave me a big hug. If you guys follow the sport and go to the Underground, I’m recognized as the Queen and he is the King haha.

Now my ultimate highlight of Affliction was meeting the man Fedor Emelianenko. I don’t think I’ve ever acted so nervous asking someone for a picture, but that’s mutha fuckin’ FEDOR! I was shaking haha. I yelled at Tracy and said “Tracy!!” and pointed to Fedor. Tracy, Krista, and I all got solo pics with Fedor.

Me and Fedor…

The next day after Affliction Tracy, Krista, and I headed straight to San Diego for the WEC that night. You know we couldn’t miss our boy Urijah Faber throw down in the ring, plus it was another MMA event in SoCal… why wouldn’t we go? lol

The San Diego Arena was not packed at all. I was trying to get two extra tickets so Dru and Jane can come but I only came across one and then during the event Ben from ADX had an extra one and by that time it was too late. I was kinda bummed out about that, but I had a good time again at the fights like always. I was very happy Urijah won and I love Jens Pulver too. After the fight Tracy took Urijah’s hotel key so that we could get ready for the afterpartying in his room. As soon as we opened his hotel room they were filming him for his online reality show so I guess now we are all on it. So keep your eyes and ears peeled for it. Urijah was starving so I gave him my food that I brought up to eat… he was the one who fought not me. He re-paid me by taking me to Thai Food a few days ago here in Hollywood anyway haha. Anyway, while Urijah was doing his interview with Sherdog we were getting ready and when we were done we headed down to the limo to get to the club for some partying.

WEC 38: Urijah’s Afterparty – CombatLifestyle Nightlife

Urijah is by far the funnest fighter to ever party with. His afterparties are always insane too. I couldn’t believe how packed it was when we got there. One thing I love about Urijah is that he will never turn a fan down. He was constantly taking pictures with fans and at the same time enjoying himself.

WEC 38: Urijah’s Afterparty – CombatLifestyle Nightlife

While we were at Urijah’s afterparty Tracy and I walked over to where TapouT was having their afterparty. When she went downstairs to the basement she bbm’ed me “Joel is here.” Tracy knows whats up hehe. Sure enough I went downstairs to find my future ex-husband lol. Joel is Brandon Vera’s little brother (I know I have this thing with guys whose name start with J and I don’t plan it that way lol)… I have a little crush on him and every time we see each other we are like magnets on the dance floor haha. Tracy left the party, but I stayed to have a dance or two or three with Joel. He is so cute… he trains and deejays. Too bad he lives in San Diego *sigh*

Me and Joel…

Everyone met back at the hotel for some more afterpartying. Krista and I didn’t stay though cause we headed back to OC with Brad and Baily and called it a night.

I had a fun eventful week of fights… next was UFC 94 in Vegas…

Finally done with my blog! haha!
