As I mentioned, last night I attended the live fights for UFC on Fox in New Jersey! The main event featured 1/2 of my favorite fighter bros, Nate Diaz (the other half, his bro Nick, cornered him). It was an exciting fight because the winner received a title shot. We got there in time to see all of the prelims in addition to the main card. In total I saw 5 hours worth of fights :) So amazing!
Check out how amazing our seats were! I could see everything in the cage crystal clear. It made the experience that much better to be that close. In addition, our seats were on the aisle in a section where people would have to pass us to get to the floor (we were 10 rows up from the floor). I would look up and there would be a fighter standing next to us waiting to get to their seats. For any other fight fans, I had Clay Guida, Michael Bisping and Jon Fitch standing next to me at some point. I didn't want to bother them for a pic though, I feel weird about doing that.
We were about 15 feet from one of the entrances where the fighters would walk out. Wouldn't you know it, they had Nate Diaz walk out on our side :) So awesome.
The fights themselves were amazing. There were a few sick knockouts, some amazing submissions (including a full on choke out - with the guy unconscious). I'm happy to say Nate Diaz won his fight via guillotine choke for his eventual title shot :) Great end to a great night!
OK, so I couldn't do another post with no food so I just have a few things to share with you. Nothing really exciting, just something I've been eating for breakfast a lot lately and some things I have coming up over the next week!
I've been eating this for breakfast a lot lately. It's just a banana with pecan butter, raisins and cinnamon. So delicious and filling!
Today I roasted a head of cauliflower for the week. I have some plans for this :) I was inspired by Shen's recent roasted cauliflower sides!
These are currently sitting on my countertop and will hopefully ripen soon... although I think it'll be a few days at least. Can't wait to eat these, especially the mangoes :)
Hope you all had a great weekend and a fun and festive Cinco de Mayo! Can't wait to show you some new meals next week. Today I'm just going to relax and probably lay on a heating pad for a bit. The crappy arena seats messed up my back/neck yesterday but it was so worth it! See you tomorrow!
