The Limp Bizkit concert scheduled for UFC 100 weekend at the Mandalay Bay Beach in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Friday, July 10, has been cancelled, according to Ticketmaster.com.
No reason was provided for the scratch; however, the "rap-metal pioneers" have not performed a concert in North America in more than eight years and were re-uniting this year for its "Unicorns N’ Rainbows" tour.
Perhaps there was more trouble behind the scenes ... time will tell.
There is no telling if the promotion will attempt to book a new act on such short notice -- UFC 100 is just two weeks away. Furthermore, it could be difficult to market and sell tickets on such a condensed schedule.
Regardless of what the UFC plans to do in response to this latest news -- if anything at all -- fans in "Sin City" for the historic weekend will have no shortage of things to keep them busy.
The UFC 100 weekend extravaganza will feature the promotion’s first-ever grappling tournament in conjunction with the Grapplers Quest organization as part of the UFC Fan Expo — a two-day fan exposition of mixed martial arts activities that starts on Friday, July 10.
In addition to the meet and greets with legendary UFC and WEC fighters, MMA demonstrations, fan-inspired special events, training and development sessions, and other exciting opportunities and entertainment, UFC officials plan to enshrine two more of its greatest stars in the Hall of Fame, coinciding with the colossal pay-per-view (PPV) event scheduled for Saturday, July 11.
