I have one word to say to Dana White and the entire UFC organization, "AMAZING".  Being a life long Philadelphian, I had the opportunity to attend UFC 101 and witness something truly unique and amazing. 

My one advise to all MMA fans, if you ever get an opportunity to attend a live UFC event, don't  hesitate and GO.  Overall, I thought the entire card was pretty boring.  I was extremely disappointed at Silva knocking out Griffin in the first round because I was so looking forward to Forrest beating the hell out of Silva.

What made this such a unique experience for me was the atmosphere of being a  spectator at a live UFC event.  I sat 8 rows from the octagon and I was able to hear ever kick, punch, slam and blood drop from each fight.  To watch on TV is great but to actually see guys get punched and kicked is something that is pretty cool.

I can't wait for the next fight in Philly.
