Hey UG, UFC 161(June 15) is shaping up to be a great event. Who's going? I know I am... I've never been to an MMA show bigger than 700 ppl. I'm heading up the day before so I'll probably catch a Joe Rogan show if he does one. What else should I check out?

It is tradition to go shirtless and paint "UFC" across your chest.

Make sure if a camera happens your way to flex to the best of your ability.

Make sure you go to rogan. Typically lots of mma fans at the show prior to the event. Makes for a great time. Phone Post

I've been to three UFCs. It's a good experience but you'll be watching the big screen 99% of the time.

I'd apply twice, once before and after the weigh ins. Then once before the event.

 

 

You'll thank me later.

Hahaha awesome I'll have to get some headphones the... Yeah the cage gets in the way for smaller shows, it's probably way worse with all the camera dudes. I'm gonna try and get a spot on the first balcony looking down so I get an overhead view. I was like ten feet from the cage at an amateur show at my work last night, the guy was like 30 and got ko'd by this 19 year old by a beautiful left hook, it happened right in font of me and I never saw exactly what happened until I saw the screen.

UFC 156 was my first live UFC event. I have been to multiple regional shows and was at the Bellator premier on Spike a copy weeks prior to 156 and I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt UFC 156 was the greatest sporting experience of my life to date. Went to the weigh ins, went and saw Rogan the night before, and went to the event. It was insane how great of a time I had. Good luck, go, u can't go wrong with a live UFC event. Phone Post 3.0

I've found the best ways to meet the fighters is find where the post-fight presser is at and just chill outside after the fights wrap up. Met Diaz bro's, Ben Henderson, Rory McDonald and plenty others this way. Phone Post 3.0

Been to a couple UFC fights and a few Strifeforce. Nothing like a live UFC Event though, from the weigh ins to the fight it's just awesome. I always stay where the fighters do it just adds to the experience. I met everyone in the card plus guys there just to see the show or cornering, to Goldie, Buffer, Joe Silva, Stich, Big John, Herb Dean. I didn't even seek them out they would just be in the lobby waiting around. Have a great time. Phone Post

LOL just use as directed dude.

Iv'e only been to 3 through out the years and serously you are going to have a great time. Def try to make the weigh ins if you can. They do put the cameramen between the ring post so you do spend a bunch looking at the bigscreen. The energy in the place will more than make up for it. Running in to randome fighters and UG'ers is funn too.
