MMAFighting.com photographer, Esther Lin, was recently on the scene at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, to shoot several notable mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters at the UFC 175: "Weidman vs. Machida" open media workouts.
Of course, the two top Middleweight stars who will collide in the main event of the evening for the 185-pound title, Chris Weidman and Lyoto Machida, were on the scene to promote their championship showdown that will be beamed on pay-per-view (PPV) this Saturday night (Sat., July 5, 2014).
Women's Bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey, was also in attendance, working up one of her last few sweats before locking limbs with Brazilian jiu-jitsu stylist, Alexis Davis, in the Fourth of July weekend co-main event. And she was in no mood for "asshole" reporters.
Urijah Faber, who takes on Alex Caceres in the "Prelims" under card featured fight on FOX Sports 1, which airs before the PPV, was the only other notable fighter among the "Sin City" Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) contingent required to be photo friendly.
