Mania Diary: UFC 162 Fan Expo, Day 2 from Las Vegas, Nevada

Adam Guillen Jr. for MMAmania.com

Expo week, blog week! Take a look at all the action from day two of the UFC Fan Expo, MMAmania style, which went down on July 6, 2013 from Las Vegas, Nevada.

Before Chris Weidman beat down former (yes, former) Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion Anderson Silva last Saturday night (July 6, 2013) at UFC 162 (re-watch the madness here), the promotion's annual fan expo wrapped up day two from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And MMAmania.com was in the house (again).

Many of today's top mixed martial arts (MMA) stars were seen rubbing elbows with celebrities in attendance, including boxing icon "Iron" Mike Tyson and pop star Usher. Unfortunately, I couldn't snap a picture of either, in between the sea of security surrounding their fan mob.

But there was lots to see and do, so let's take a look at the photo diary of the rest of day two from the UFC Fan Expo 2013 (and be sure to catch up on what you missed from day one by clicking here).

Fans once again lined up early in the morning, just to get inside the expo.
