- When a member of his team starts complaining during practice that the house is filled with dirty dishes, Chuck Liddell decides to do the team a favor. Late one night, Chuck stuffs Antonio Banuelos into a gym bag and leaves him on the front step of the house. He posts a note on top of the bag that reads, "A Gift for my Team. Antonio will clean up after you. He will cook you dinner. If you are really nice to him, he will paint your toenails. But be warned! Do not shoot a naked Reebok Zigtec work-out video without him because it will really hurt his feelings."
- Tito Ortiz enlists the help of comedian Carlos Mencia to help explain the value of self-promotion to his fighters. Mencia offers the following words of advice, "It doesn't matter if what you say is true. What matters is, if you say something ridiculous enough times, people won't always believe you, but believe me, they will talk about you!"
When Carlos finished his speech, Tito offered the following response, "Thanks Carlos. You are the greatest comedian in the world. And I am the greatest fighter in the world. Actually, I'm in the best shape of my life. My knee is at full strength, my back is fully healed, my skull is intact, and my neck is the strongest it's ever been. In fact, my neck is like steel rebar."

When a member of his team starts complaining during practice that the house has been trashed, Rich Franklin decides to do the team a favor. Late one night, Franklin stuffs Jorge Gurgel into a gym bag and leaves him on the front step of the house. He posts a note on top of the bag that reads, "A Gift for my Team. Jorge will clean up after you. He will sing your praises. If you are really nice to him, he will show you how to shave those cool lines into your eyebrows. But be warned! Do not challenge him to a jiu-jitsu match because he will refuse to engage and will punch you in your face."
