    I remember reading about how UFC Fight Club members get to personally meet and greet the fighters

    i went to UFC 84 at MGM last month. Met a shit ton of fighters just sitting around the hotel and hanging out. depending on the day you get there. here are a few of the hotspots.

    1. Wed and Thurs. head to the entrance of the mandalay bay events center. work your way to the back entrance....fighters coming in and out all day shooting promos and doing interviews. At 84 in Vegas, we kind of found this by accident, We were walking through the events center. and we see a table with makeup, UFC gloves, spray bottles, and shit like that...we look in the door next to us, and Palhares is shadow boxing with the black screen behind him like you see pre fight...the people working for the UFC were cool as shit and let us hang out there, as long as were werent in the way. Met Huerta, Florian, Lesnar, Mendes, Palhares, Soko, Clementi, Coleman, THiago Silva this way.


    2. Most fighters that arent fighting on the card but are there for promo stuff or to watch the fight check in thursday to teh hotel. We sat in the MGM lobby in the mid afternoon, and one fighter after the other came in...it was pretty cool.

    The autographs and meetings are for UFC fight club members. Im sure they are cool, but just by hanging around the hotel you will meet/see a shit ton of fighters.

    Also, the day of the fight. about 1hr before the start of the first pre lim, go wait at the entrance to mandalay from the main casino/hotel part. You will see all teh fighters head to the event with their entourages. Pretty impressive to see some of these world class athletes and the intensity in their eyes just a few hours from a fight.
