 *********UPDATE************

For those of you going to 159: Ottavia Bourdain, Myself and Igor Gracie are putting on a Fundraiser/BJJ Seminar for #FranksFight at Renzo Gracie's Academy the day of 159. Frankie Edgar will be there as a special guest instructor

 

Renzo's Academy is very close to Penn station and there will be plenty of time to get from the seminar to the arena by train before doors open.

If you live in the area or are in the area for the fights, please stop in and support Frank and his battle with cancer.

Check out the website that was made for the seminar: 

http://franksfightseminar.com

 

 

UFC 159 Fight Card

  • UFC Light Heavyweight Title Fight: Jon Jones (c) vs. Chael Sonnen
  • Michael Bisping vs. Alan Belcher
  • Jim Miller vs. Pat Healy
  • Cheick Kongo vs. Roy Nelson
  • Phil Davis vs. Vinny Magalhaes
  • James Head vs. Nick Catone
  • Al Iaquinta vs. Joe Proctor

I've got my time off from work set and am going to fly there for the show. Maybe we can do a UG get together or something? Maybe something more...

depends on how much money you want to spend/what you want to do

 

there are also hotels in Jersey City and Hoboken (which are closer to Newark)

IF you're flying into Newark just stay in one of the little Airport motels. If you're combining UFC trip with NYC sightseeing etc, you are better off staying there.

Matt Phillips -

Tickets for this show go on sale next week. How many of you are going?

 

I've got my time off from work set and am going to fly there for the show. Maybe we can do a UG get together or something? Maybe something more...

 

Yes, I will be there. And everytime you touch a meet and great, it turns to gold. So I am all aboard on that train. Phone Post

Have to see the rest of the card first, no way I'm buying tickets with just that fight announced.

Yeah but even then It's not a guarantee you'll get the fights you paid for with fighters gettting injured. I'm hoping the fights we get will be good regardless.

path train to newark = no can defend

 

however only hotel in Hoboken is the W so if you are making Scott Blevins money then you should probably stick to JC, Newark, NYC.

If you never have been to NYC then you should check it out.

 


Im not making Anderson Silva money, but I am used to Hawaii prices by now.

Yessss. Time for a Matt Phillips-orchestrated Meet-n-Greet Part 2! I'll be driving up (6.5 hours) for this one.

Edit: And hopefully not losing my wallet along the way like I did in Vegas!
