Alright, since tickets just went on sale this week, I wanted to get an idea of who is coming to Vegas for International Fight Week.

George from MMA Junkie and I are planning the 3rd Annual UG Get Together at MMA Junkie Studio's. Typically its right after the weigh ins on Friday and there is always a great line up of fighters to meet and get pics with. More details on that in this thread later on.

There are some other things going on it would be great to do with UG'ers, so I just wanted to get a feel for who is going and when. You never know what kinda crazy stuff will happen...

If you havent booked your hotel, the fan expo page has a "travel" tab. Booking through them will save you some cash.

 

Here is the link to the travel page: https://aws.passkey.com/event/11164565/owner/28466/home

Adam Hunter (@mmaroasted) is going to be in town that week with some shows. I would love to get a group of UG'ers to go see his show. That would be absolutely epic.

Like Matt said, you'll get to meet lots of fighters and it's definitely a great time. I would suggest staying at Mandalay Bay, in either of their towers (Mandalay Tower or THE Hotel tower).

If the wallet is a little light, then maybe look into the Luxor or Excalibur. Both attach to Mandalay Bay and Excalibur via a walkway and trust me when I tell you that that's convenient because walking outside in the summer can be brutal.

Plus, it's your best chance to run into all the fighters and MMA notables that will be in town for the two fight cards and the expo.

Aside from that link, check out www.facebook.com/mandalaybay and twitter.com/mandalaybay. Lastly, sign up for www.mlife.com. That's their rewards program and probably your best bet for future earnings like free rooms and great deals on food and drink. Can't emphasize enough the savings you'll get from doing that.

Any questions, hit me up.

Dan I respect you and your passion for the business, but please make your own thread for this. 

This is about UG'ers coming together in Vegas for a good time. :)

We'll have a primetime show that night, immediately after the weighins. 5pm PT.

Thanks for tuning into the show.
