It was great seeing some UG'ers over the course of the week. Matt, Vixen, JM, the guys from the Inland Empire (Randy and Mike?) and a few others.

I'm sorry, I'm bad with names, especially when the Heinekens are in effect.

What a great week. Looking at all the photos on UFC.com makes me wish I came out even earlier for the pool party and Brazilian party.

We got to Palace Station (my departed father's favorite casino & Fertitta Casino) Friday morning, took a quick nap and went to the Art of Fighting exhibit downtown. We were going to go straight to Lion Fights at 4p but called an audible decided to go to UFC 175 weigh-ins and go to Lion Fights a little later. I even photobombed their Fight Pass coverage as I walked behind Megan Olivi without realizing it (http://imgur.com/a/j0mA5#8). Ran into Edmond and Judo Gene on the way out of Mandalay and took pics with them. That was great and then hit up Lion Fights which was awesome as well.

Fan Expo was awesome. I took photos with Shamrock, Severn, Frye, Pulver, Bonnar, Rockhold, J-Lau, Uncle Creepy, Kampmann, Saffiedine, Poirier, Jardine, Mike Thomas Brown, Mascot Chuck Liddell, almost all the Octagon girls except Britt, Arianny and Azuza and even got a pick with Chuck Zito! I got Kampmann, Jardine and Bonnar to sign my copy of Octagon (which I foolishly opted not to bring on Sat so I didn't get Shamrock or Pulver's sigs).

I was a little bummed there were no Roots of Fight, Bad Boy or even a PRIDE section. Overall it seemed like there were less clothing vendors than before (and more massage devices). I did pick up a standard black PRIDE shirt at the UFC store though. Also got the Lyoto shirt with the image from the poster. Bought a ATT shirt directly from Mike Brown and Bonnar sold me his "Chael Sonnen Wants Anderson" shirt.

Watched UFC 175 for a very fair price thanks to UGer JasonHighTower and met up with TexasBadAss as well. Scored even better seats for TUF 19 Finale on Ticketmaster and even won some money on underdog Dustin Ortiz.

All in all just a really fun weekend. Can't wait to do it again.

Sorry I didn't get to meet up with any of the other UGers.

We had a great time at the UFC EXPO & fight weekend! Im still exhausted. We also met up with Rondas trainer " Edmond Tarverdyan"- He spoke with my son & I for like 20 mins. The list goes on & on. All the attention and distractions took my sons pains away. Seeing & watching my son happy is all that matters. The UFC experience and fun is all for my son. I think this was our 3rd or 4th UFC in the past 12 months. Ugers lets meet up at the next UFC in Vegas.  

So many photos. Only posting a few

Five finger death punch "Chris Kael"

 

Forrest!

Alexis Davis

My son has no clue who Frye was. But as we walked out my son was like " Hey the guy from Godzilla"! Don was in Godzilla final wars. Don signed the back of my sons shirt.

 

Rashad was real cool & spoke to us for quite some time.

If you can do only one UFC show then I highly recommend going July 4th weekend for the fights and fan expo. I'm hoping the UFC continues to push this as their mega event of the year. Phone Post 3.0
