    My trip costs just got a lot bigger as I've had to extend my trip by 2 days to make sure I don't miss this.

    Could be the greatest card ever and hopefully will be worth the extra money, it's just cost me $500 to put my flight back and once I add on tickets, hotel etc. it's not gonna be cheap :faint:



    Middleweight Championship bout: Anderson Silva (c) vs Chael Sonnen

    Bantamweight Championship bout: Dominick Cruz (c) vs Urijah Faber

    Light Heavyweight bout: Tito Ortiz vs Forrest Griffin

    Middleweight bout: Rich Franklin vs Cung Le

    Middleweight bout: Michael Bisping vs Tim Boetsch


    I've never seen a sports event like this before in Vegas so I had a couple questions for some of the knowledgeable guys who might be able to help.

    Will I be able to park a scooter near to the entrance to seats, or to an elevator which takes you to the correct level and then use my crutches to get to the seat?

    I can walk short distances and use crutches as my balance is poor, is the arena set some way away from the casino and my best bet is to just get disabled tickets so I have no problems?

    Yep it's gonna be awesome. Will have to see how it compares with the all heavyweight card at 146.

    At MGM garden there's not much in the way of disabled assistance that I've seen but I would call them and find out your options.

    i would be more excited for the undercard fights than the main event. Faber and Cruz have some real bad blood thats getting worse. The first Silva-Sonnenfight was fishy, like Silva wanted it to go the full 5 rounds. This one will be much quicker with The Spider winning again. White was not happy with Silva after that fight

    The card looks amazing and it's gonna be funny to see if Sonnen can back up all his trashtalk from the interview a couple days ago.

    TUF has been good this year too and as Gregg says the situation is getting pretty tense now between those two.


    I'll give MGM a call and see what they can recommend as my best course of action, I've changed my flights and everything now so I'm definitely going and hopefully tickets won't be too much of a problem :)

    I can walk around with my crutches ok as long as it's only short(ish) distances, I remember how big the MGM is though from when I got lost on my way to Craftsteak a couple years ago and wasn't expecting anything to be in close proximity :evillaugh

    Roll on the summer!!

    WOW hated seeing this....now thinking of quick July trip for the fight..

    We were there for UFC 130. The arena energy is indescribable. This will be a great place to be when Sonnen takes the belt...In Chael`s Arena....
