UFC 157 was the first live event I attended today. Man, what an experience. We got there just in time to see Roberton's nasty kneebar. Wasn't able to get any pics, unfortunately. But I saw Bubba and Luke Barnatt from TUF 17 while walking back to my car after the fights were over. The two guys sitting next to us didn't show up until the main card started, idiots!! They missed the FOTN!! I don't understand why people do that, you never know what kind of fight you'll miss.
It was a great crowd, good atmosphere. I'm surprised at the amount of cheering Liz Carmouche received before and during the fight. But after the fight she got a great ovation, and deserved it for almost finishing Ronda. Everyone was super pumped, actually it seemed like the crowd was more pumped for Main event than the co-main. It was awesome!!
Totally worth going to. Despite the disappointing co main fight, the main event and Bermudez/Grice fight made my night. Will do it again when I save up some money. My goal is to go to UFC 160 in Vegas. Will be the closest one here to California I can go to. I'm sure those who have gone to events know the type of experience. I loved it. Can't wait to go to another one!
