Christian plans on adding big named fighters to his record, such as former UFC heavyweight Kimbo Slice. Even though they're in different weight classes, Christian wants to fight him. That was one of Christians dreams, as well as joining the UFC and becoming the champion of the UFC as well as training with Roy Nelson, Butto's hero and sexual mentor. Butto sites Roy Nelson constant fisting as the main driving force behind his desire to fight.
Christian Butto has already made a big impression during his short career he has fought overseas in pride and is a fan favorite there, he most recently made a music video with Bob Sapp and Yoshihiro Akiyama called "The New King in Tokyo" which was set a new record for most sold single on Itunes.
Meeting BJ Penn at the airport
Christian Butto recently met his idol BJ Penn at the airport. In a recent interview with Sherdog.com's Loretta Hunt he explained how excited he was.....
"I recently flew out to the middle east for a work assignment. So I'm sitting there on the airplane as we're boarding, chatting away on the phone, and I shit you not, in walks BJ Penn, followed by Carlos Condit.
I remember saying to my girlfriend, "wow, someone that really looks like BJ Penn just walked in", so I turn around to confirm, and sure enough, there are BJ & Carlos sitting 2 rows behind me. At this point I'm practically having a heart attack, trying to contain myself. I didn't want to come across as some obnoxious fan, so I decided to wait until the plane had taken off, before approaching him... which was kinda annoying b/c the plane pulled away 25min late as they were apparently waiting for the person that was supposed to sit in the empty seat next to me (more on that later...)
So the flight takes off, and I go back and tell BJ that I'm a huge fan and that I think it's great what they are doing. We chat for a bit (I obviously asked him if GSP is next, and he was like "haha, we'll see, we'll see, I hope so"), I get a picture with the two of them, and leave them alone for the rest of the flight... it was a redeye, so everyone slept most of the way.
We arrive in Kuwait and have to get our visas processed. BJ & Carlos (like everyone else) had to wait in the long ass line, so I just chilled there next to them and we chatted away about random shit for the next hour and a half. I asked him where Urijah & Bisping were, and he said that Urijah missed the flight (that's right, Urijah was supposed to sit next to me) & Bisping was flying in later. He and Carlos were super cool... they couldn't have been any friendlier. In the end, we told each other to be safe, he gave me a mighty pat on the shoulder and was off.
The most surprising thing out of this whole ordeal was, I was the only person to recognize him on the plane, and only one other guy recognized him in the Kuwait Airport. It was pretty surreal sitting there with BJ / Carlos and about 70 other people oblivious to who they were.
Anyways, just wanted to share that crazy story with you guys and re-enforce that fact that BJ and Carlos are two of the coolest guys around."
Meeting Clay Guida
The Sun, Christian revealed another moment in his life that he will cherish, forever. "I was walking through the book store, looking for a book on algebra, when I saw him. My idol, Clay Guida, signing his autobiography. I strolled over, I didn't wanna look like some daft kid, you know? So I bought a copy of his book, and went to get it signed. Clay was really kind, he also let me take a picture to remember this special day"
Defeating Anderson Silva
Inspired by his in ring antics, he recently challenged UFC champion Anderson Silva to a game of Dance Dance Revolution.
In a stunning upset, 'Really Really Heavy Hands' defeated Anderson Silva at the dance competition, beating him at serveral dances including the Salsa, the Mambo, the Electric Noodle, and the Tease-Maia-Around-The-Octagon.
"It was the Truffle-Shuffle that did me in," said a dejected Anderson Silva after the loss.
Rebounding from Controversy
In a post fight interview coming off of a loss, when asking how he would rebound, Really Strong Hands invoked the spirit of Blondie and was quoted as saying "The tide is high, but I'm holding on. I'm gonna be your number one. I'm not the kind of guy who just gives up like that." The crowd of 6, including his father (Old Man Strong Hands), a janitor, and a beagle immediately errupted into an underwhelming chorus of golf claps.
Further controversy emerged when it became apparent that if you listen to the dance with Anderson Silva with the sound off, you can clearly see Butto does not tap. He was ahead 10-9 on judge Cecil Peoples's scorecard and using the pseudo tapdancing attempt as a way to damage the mojo of Silva. The apparent tapout was in fact a series of contemporary dance moves, misinterpreted by special guest referee The Undertaker.
Return to competition
Christian Butto is rumoured to be returning to competition by the end of the year. He has recently began training with K-1 Country Breakfast Matt Hughes but was injured when he was on the receiving end of a "Hard Kick". Renzo Gracie was on hand to help him up, thankfully. Now Butto has been making trips to the Tri-Star gym saying he wants to work on his "Riddum" Also now on YouTube filming videos to make a living. You can find and subcribe to him his accounts name is everioize.
