On Thursday afternoon, NBA legend Shaquielle O’Neal opened the doors of his home to fighters and the media for a special pre-fight press conference for UFC on FOX 11. Yes, you read that correctly. The UFC on FOX 11 press conference was held in Shaq’s house.

The presser was held in Shaq’s personal gym, which includes some nice hardwood so he can keep his basketball skills sharp and Superman logos plastered all over the walls.
It was certainly a unique press conference based on location alone, and the media members were eating it up.
