The weekend of UFC 100 last year proved to be a milestone for the UFC and MMA. Not only was UFC 100 the biggest event in UFC history, but the debut of the UFC Fan Expo was a huge success leading up to the historic night. Due to the success last year, the Mandalay Bay Convention Center will hold the second annual UFC Fan Expo again this year on Friday May 29th and Saturday May 30th, leading up to UFC 114 Saturday night when TUF 10 coaches “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans finally face off. What do you have planned for that weekend?
For any fight fan, new or old, the UFC Fan Expo is something you don’t want to miss. From training seminars with elite fighters and trainers, to autograph signings, the Expo will have something for everyone. And don’t think you have to wait in line for hours just to meet your favorite fighter. While walking around the convention center, keep an eye out for familiar faces to the UFC. It won’t be unusual to see some big names that aren’t sitting behind the autograph tables.
Last year’s event saw the late Charles “Mask” Lewis, the co-founder of Tapout, and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Chuck Liddell inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame. Expect more historic events like this to happen again.
Along side the fighters will be all of the premiere fight brands that support them. These brands will showcase all of their products and will be selling them as well. Don’t miss out on the great deals being that weekend from these top-notch brands.
This weekend is huge for fight fans and if you can make it to Vegas for the weekend it will definitely be one to remember. If you cannot make it MMA Valor will be there covering the Expo so make sure to check back here.
The UFC is going all out with the Expo on Friday and Saturday, ending the weekend with UFC 114 Saturday night. And if you think the action stops there, think again. Tuff-N-Uff Productions, one of the leading amateur MMA organizations, is putting on a double header with two fight cards in one weekend! The first on Friday night and the other, Sunday night so be sure to check it out at The Orleans Hotel and Casino. Don’t miss out on this stacked MMA weekend!
