UFC Fight Week/Expo part 2
It was an awesome week!
Friday night, I was still kind of tired from staying up the night before, so I decided to skip going out to the Strip to see fireworks. I thought I’d regret it, but I looked out my window and saw some small ones, so at least I can say I saw them. 😀
Saturday I woke up at 5 AM as usual, picked up Serena, went to 24 hour Fitness that I joined, did weights and elliptical machine, and then hurried to the UFC Expo :D. I had a signing at “Fear The Fighter” booth from 10:00 AM -11:30. It was super cool! They set up a cage and had lines and stuff. I signed with Julianna. Yay Julianna.
At 11:30, people were still waiting and I felt really bad, but nobody told the people I was leaving at 11:30. ._. When I left, the whole line was sad. I’m sorry! ;.; A few people followed me. <3 After I took pictures with them and received a few awesome Fear The Fighter T-shirts (omg I love them), I looked for a place to eat the lunch I packed. I ducked behind a black curtain and ate on the floor. As I was finishing, this guy on a motorized wheel chair rolled in to park it. He mentioned a "green room" next door. Huh? Apparently it was a place for fighters to relax away from the general fans, but fans who paid a really expensive price could enter and mingle with them?
Dude. Why did nobody tell me about this room? :/ oh well. I went in there and I MET CHUCK LIDDELL! The real one! lol I didn't get a picture...he was going somewhere. I was shy.
I then did a a signing at Outlaw Fight Gear. They were very good to me! Super nice bunch, and they took care of me and gave me nice gear and clothing. I can’t wait to model it! 😀
I found Serena and we hung out a bit. We found this new product by the company “Quest” that has “Quest nutrition” and “Quest Training.” It’s this “All Attack” head thing, that you hold like a mitt and we practice accuracy. I got one! 😀 can’t wait to try it out.
Right next to Outlaw Fight Gear was an action figure booth. Topps? or Round 5? I found a Mayhem Miller for $5, and also Dana White. I’m such big fans of both, so I bought both. ^^;; haha and I tweeted it, and Mayhem Miller favorited the post. YAY he saw!! #fangirl

I brought Serena home, and then went to UFC 175. I could only get one ticket. I sat next to these very nice ladies and guy. 😀
They gave me lots of advice on stuff….in life…and told me who famous fighters were who I did but didn’t recognize. lol
The event was amazing. Lots of exciting fights and I DID NOT FALL ASLEEP. 😀 (I didn’t train so hard today lol)
I ninja-snuck out just before the event ended so I beat the crowds and got home early. Yay!
