UFC 148 Fan Expo Diary, Day 2 In Las Vegas

ufc fan expo

Now that you have all settled down after Anderson Silva beat down Chael Sonnen to retain his middleweight title for the tenth straight time at UFC 148 last night (July 7, 2012), let's take a look at the happenings earlier in the day at the UFC Fan Expo, which was held at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Yesterday, we saw Round 5's latest venture in the collectibles world, some of your favorite mixed martial artists meeting with fans and, of course, plenty of shameless photos of beautiful women wearing next to nothing promoting the latest product from vendors across the country.

In day two of our UFC Fan Expo diary, we see a few more pictures of your favorite fighters signing autographs and smiling for the cameras, some action from the Grapplers Quest Tournament and Tito Ortiz's Hall of Fame induction.

Let's get right to it:

Arianny was up and at 'em early posing for pictures with fans:

Here is something you might not see every day -- one UFC star asking another for an autograph. Avid Round 5 collector Duane Ludwig asking Donald Cerrone to sign his limited edition figure:

There you have it, Maniacs. If you ever have a chance to make it out to an Expo, do it. The pictures really do not do it justice, as the atmosphere is electric and there is so much stuff happening all over the place.

In case your wondering, International Fight week will be a yearly thing and more-than-likely, the expo will go down again next year in Las Vegas.
