I'm going. And YES Anderson Silva IS signing autographs.

 

But heres the thing...he's not doing UFC sponsored sessions but VENDOR ones. They are ALL at the expo. You just gotta find the table he's at...

 

I have the number...table...but I forgot..but the Vendor name is..

 

MMA Bling LLC/Nogueria (clothing company?) something like that.

 

Shaking Anderson's hand is the biggest reason I'm going to the expo.

 

**** the haters. *chuckle* That other thread..the "who wouldn't you get an autograph from" or whatever....that's just stupid.

 

Anderson is the greatest fighter in the world...and I'm shaking that mans hand.

 

Cheers and enjoy the expo and fights!

I am going but does anyone know if the hotel will carry the PPV as orderable in the room???

 

I have no other way to watch it with cousins under 18

 

Dude..I'm 99% positive you'll be able to order it in the room. But call the hotel and find out...they've got someone at the desk 24 hours.

 

Las Vegas is UFC central...and the Mandalay hosts UFC events...so yeah...I'm pretty sure you'll be okay on that front.

 

Best of luck sir

 

Cheers

Ok so I'm at work so cant post any pics yet but I just wanted to give kinda a quick run through of what went down at the expo. First I gotta say I had a blast! I wish it never end. So many MMA fans and so many fighters. I walked in and saw looked to my left and there was demian miai. I kept walking looking for Forrest cause I knew he was leaving soon I saw Frank Mir but the line was ridiculous. Got my glove signed by Forrest then went to see Couture at the Borders booth but you hade to buy a 50$ book to get his autograph so I left to the Silver star booth to see wanderlei the line was cut off but wandy stayed for an extra hour! he even got an in an argument with a security guard for stoping some little kid. Gotta love wandy. So much awesome stuff at the expo...Cheick Kongo was in the food court ordering a sandwich, Also saw Jake Sheilds int eh food court. Funny story: Dos Santos was walking out and I asked him for a pic his entourage were like "we gotta go" but Santos stopped and took a pic with me anyway. I was wearing a Forrest t shirt and his friend was all "you wanna take a picture with him in a Forrest Griffin shirt? your crazy!" Dos Santos was like "Forrest is good" with his accent and shook my hand haha i thought that was cool...so much more stuff went down but this is getting to long and this was just the first day!! that day also met Vitor, Swick,The K. Zombie (he gav me a free shirt!) and alot more...it was awesome!

Thanks!

 

I knew Chael started with a C. LOL

 

I think I'm down to one person whose name slipped my mind - the one in the pink suit!

 

That's Shonie Carter isn't it? Remember him from some old tapes and he was on an earlier TUF season as well.
