Happy Memorial Day from the MMAmania.com cast and crew!

It's patriotic because I added a flag. And her name is Erin Stern. "Like" her on Facebook.

It's that time again, Maniacs -- open thread and discussion.

Talk about the week that was, from Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) getting down in "Sin City" with its UFC 146: "Dos Santos vs. Mir" pay-per-view (PPV) event, to Vitor Belfort's untimely injury and the amazing amount of beer consumed before, during and after this three day holiday weekend.

As always, we encourage, no, DEMAND that you share links and videos, swap war stories ... whatever you want (within reason) in the comments section below. Not too enamored with this year's patriotic pin-up? Do better with pics of your own.

And let's not forget what this day is all about (cyber-salute!)

Have a good time. Enjoy. And remember to come back later today after your parades, barbecues, beach -- whatever the case may be -- for top-notch mixed martial arts (MMA) coverage and a look ahead to this weekend's fights.

Happy Memorial Day!
