I just got back from the expo and the fight and I'm planning to go again in December.

Some tips and you can ask me anything you want.

Do NOT stay off the strip. The best thing about Vegas is you don't have to can it anywhere.

If you want to run into fighters stay at the MGM grand or the Mandalay. But you will run into fighters at any of the top hotels on the strip. I stayed at the Luxor this time and ran into everyone.

Take twice the money you think you'll need. That place is a vortex for cash and credit cards.

And get there a couple of days before the fight. There's always stuff to do that week and the night of the fight there are after parties so you won't get much, if any, sleep that night.

Oh and tell your girl to take comfortable shoes. I'm still recovering from the heels I wore all week.

You won't regret it. Vegas is a blast and there's nothing like being there for a UFC card.

Oh and don't share a room with Sean Mccorkle. Lol Thats an inside joke for Matt. Phone Post 3.0

yea i was thinking stay at MGM since the fights are there.

MGM is relatively inexpensive...scour online towards the fall and you should be able to find good deals and rates...trust me...driving around or taking cab/shuttle can be a pain in the ass ESPECIALLY on the strip..if this is your first experience, just being able to walk outside your door and run into a bunch of fighters will be worth it...


yae i was checking online, right now 3 nights would run me 450. but if i wait im sure there will be some sort of deal.

yeah there should be decent promo codes popping up...for example, on mycheapvegas.com you can get Dec 26-29 for $267 total...you need to register, which is free

VTFU tomorrow for the info when my VU resets

superuser - Was thinking about it. Hotels probably crank up their prices around this time though as its NYE week?
Best to stay downtown and not on the strip. More bang for your buck and it's just more fun. Take a cab to the strip or shuttle and your all set Phone Post 3.0
Do not do this. Phone Post 3.0
Can't believe I'm saying this...

Goku is right. Phone Post
Confirmed. I was in Vegas for the first time last year - downtown is a bit of a shit hole. As a tourist it also felt mildly threatening.

Also accidentally strayed outside downtown while looking for the Neonboneyard. Apparently that area is called the 'Dope District', as we were told by a passing truck driver who told us it wasn't safe and we should get back to downtown ASAP.

The strip and it's shiney casinos were infinitely more welcoming.

As a Brit it's also amazing what you get for your money in terms of accommodation quality from most of the casinos. Phone Post

I'm sorry man don't do that it was a bad joke. Stay away from the Stratosphere it's in a bad part of town off the strip. It looks cool on the website but it's the last place I would have on my list. I would try and stay where the fight is being held, it will be loaded with fighters etc. Phone Post
