    I've been to 3 events in the past. That was
    before Zuffa took over. I got to see Tito
    Ortiz debut as well as Randy Couture and Mark
    Kerr. It was several years ago and I could'nt
    possibly afford to go to Vegas to see an event
    now. I met Mark Coleman,Maurice Smith,Dan
    Henderson, Tank Abbot, Ken Shamrock,and a few
    other big fighters from the past. Everyone of
    them were verry aproachable and even Tank was
    verry humble. Have you been there lately?
    what's it like now?

    I havent been lucky enough to make it to vegas to see a fight live, but good luck even trying to approach the fighters if you do get the chance unless you catch them after the event at a local club or bar...

    I have never been, but I would imagine that unless you are close to the front it is better on tv.

    Never been to an event but had the chance to meet Matt Serra at the NRA convention. I didnt care for his attitude on the TUF and didnt feel like standing in line for 10-15 minutes anyway. Sounds like you got to meet some of the founding fathers of the UFC, it would be cool to have a beer with Tank?

    I got lucky 2 times and sat front row. It was
    $100 bucks back then and was worth every penny.
    The crowds were insane and constantly standing.
    Now the front several rows are actors,fighters,
    rock stars and big shots. I can only imagine
    what tickets cost today. I catch a lot of
    MMA events when they're in my area but there's
    been nothing like the UFC.
