Fan Puts Belt On GSP: A UFC fan asked Dana White at a Q&A session last week if he could put the belt on Georges St. Pierre when he beat Jake Shields. White said yes. Even more impressive than that was how he actually got to the show. “When he considered buying tickets months ago, his wife, Corrina, reminded him that his five-year-old daughter Emily has a dance recital on Sunday. In short, she said he couldn’t go. But when his name was drawn in a raffle at his local Boston Pizza – two tickets, a hotel room and airfare – his better half was singing a different tune.” Lucky bastard. [Eh Game, Cage Writer]

Enjoy your moment, kid.
This will hopefully be a good thing.
Needless to say, this is bigger than the Olympics.
