A big event was scheduled at the Tapout warehouse in Grand Terrace, CA. Many MMA fighters made appearances to sign autographs. Clothing was also being sold at the event but the autographs were free. When I arrived the place was jam packed. I missed some of the MMA fighters that made appearances earlier in the morning. Roy Nelson and Tyson Griffen were fighters that I wanted autographs from but had missed.
I made it in time for Kimbo Slice, Martin "Hitman" Kampmann, Mike "Joker" Guymon, and Punkass & Skyscrape of the Tapout crew. I was really looking forward to seeing Kimbo Slice. He was the main reason I went to the event. The MMA fighters took time to meet and greet all fans. Nobody felt like they were rushed in the autograph line.

After getting my autographs I left the event. I was walking on the sidewalk and noticed the Ultimate Fighter winner Roy "Big Country" Nelson signing autographs and posing for photos. Nobody really noticed him outside of the event. I asked Roy for a photo. He was very happy to pose for photos and sign additional autographs for the fans.

Thanks to Tapout for this free event.
