Off-Ice Fighting

09/24/2007 at 7:25pm EDT

This isn’t hockey related, but I thought I’d share anyway…

In late August, I covered the BodogFight’s 6th season television production in Vancouver for MMA on Tap. Among other things, I got to interview the rather famous billionaire bad boy, Calvin Ayre.

I’m not very knowledgeable on the world of ultimate fighting, and the whole experience was a huge learning curve. My thanks to the boys at MMAonTap for the education and opportunity. It was fascinating to see how another sport works behind the scenes—and quite honestly, these were some of the nicest athletes I’ve ever met.

Oh, and by the way? I didn’t mention it in the article, but Ayre is a huge Canucks fan. :)
