Remember the Expo!
Dana White is bringing a little something extra to the UFC 136 event when he travels to "The Lone Star State" for the promotion's trip to Houston, Texas, which is tentatively scheduled for the Toyota Center on Oct. 8, 2011.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently announced it will coordinate a two-day "Fan Expo" at the nearby George R. Brown Convention Center from Oct. 7 right up until fight time on Oct. 8 to coincide with the UFC 136 pay-per-view broadcast.
Here are the current UFC Fan Expo "Houston" ticket prices:
Two Day Ticket - $55*
Friday Ticket - $40*
Saturday Ticket - $45*
*Note: Ticket prices will increase, effective October 6, 2011 at 11:59 PM (EST).
The UFC Fan Expo typically includes meet and greets with legendary UFC, Pride FC and Strikeforce fighters, mixed martial arts (MMA) demonstrations, grappling "Super Fights," fan-inspired special events, training and development sessions, as well as other combat related opportunities and entertainment.
In addition to attracting more than "150 leading vendors covering roughly 300,000 square feet of space," the exhibit floor will "feature apparel, electronic gaming, food & beverages, fight gear, fitness equipment and supplies, nutritional supplements, lifestyle products and much more."
Oh, and by the way, there are also some huge fights taking place that weekend.
UFC 136 has yet to be announced, but UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez is "likely" to defend his 265-pound strap against the winner of Junior dos Santos vs. Shane Carwin, who throw down at UFC 131 on June 11 in Vancouver.
