MMA Fighting photographer, Esther Lin, was on the scene at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Wednesday (May 20, 2015) to shoot several notable mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters at the UFC 187: "Johnson vs. Cormier" open media workouts.
Naturally, the two men who will collide in the main event of the evening for the vacant light heavyweight strap, Anthony Johnson and Daniel Cormier, were on the scene to promote their 205-pound showdown that will be beamed on pay-per-view (PPV) this weekend (Sat., May 23, 2015), also at MGM Grand.
Safe to say it was a packed house.
The two fighters who will co-headline the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) event in a middleweight title fight -- division king Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort -- were also among the "Sin City" contingent required to be photo friendly, as "All American" and "The Phenom" worked up a sweat and showed off some of their patented moves.
MMAmania.com will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 187 fight card, starting with the Fight Pass "Prelims" matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. ET, and then the remaining under card balance on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET before the PPV main card start time at 10 p.m. ET.
