UFC Fan Expo: Must Attend Event of the Year
As a fan of the sport for almost 20 years now, I'm continually amazed at how effective Mixed Martial Arts is at keeping fans engaged and interested at such an intimate level. Whether you're a fighter, a gym rat, a die-hard fan of the sport, or just a guy that likes to see the best in one on one combat sport, MMA is the avenue to "Living the Fight Life". The UFC has done a phenomenal job at making the "Fight Life" that much more accessible to the masses with the UFC Fan Expo that is being held this weekend ahead of UFC 148. If you haven't experienced it yet, you've got to find a way to make it to the Mecca of MMA and see it to believe it.
There are Expo's, and then there are EXPO's! The UFC Fan Expo has everything you would expect of a show this size but delivers on a scale that no other show has ever matched. The sheer number of professional athletes that you can meet up close and personal at the UFC Fan Expo is unheard of. When was the last time you had all of the top NBA, MLB or NFL stars all in one place? Being able to shake hands with your favorite fighters, snapping a pic and getting an autograph with world champions all while shooting the shit with elite fighters as if you trained together is unheard of access. The fact that the UFC gives you the opportunity to meet over 50 of the best fighters in the world puts this show on a completely different level than any other expo out there.
If you missed this years event, don't miss the next one. The vendors, fighters and fans make this a fun weekend event that everybody needs to experience at least once in their lifetime.
Check out some clips of the Expo, Fan Interviews as well as their UFC 148 predictions from the video below. We're going to have a lot more content in the days to come, but this will give you a quick inside look at the UFC Fan Expo.
