Well of course people are going, why else would the UFC sell tickets to this event? Generally, tickets = attendance, so yes, people are going. But I specifically want to know if anybody on Bloody Elbow was planning to attend. I guess this question feeds into a larger question of how many BE readers are in the greater Las Vegas area or are willing to travel to attend events.
Why do I bring this up? Well, it all started when I made the decision to go into deep credit card debt. First I expanded my wardrobe, which has nothing to do with MMA. Oh, except now I own 80 pairs of Dennis Hallman style Speedos that I wear to work on a daily basis.
The next step was planning to travel more. I've only been recently been traveling west (Phoenix) for work and I absolutely love it. It's amazing how things are warm out there, but absolutely miserable in Chicagoland on a regular basis. I've recently got some pretty good Groupon deals for hotels in Phoenix and Vegas (Hard Rock) planning a winter trip - then I remembered 'hey, aren't there fights in Vegas sometimes??' Or always, whatever.
So here I am, ready to head out west and potentially be at the center of the universe when Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem have a monster fight that will likely propel the earth against its axis and turn the poles upside down. I'm fairly confident that tickets are pricier for Las Vegas events (confirmation requested, thank you) but I don't care since I want to be warm in December and watch the EPICSMASH2011.
So tell me Bloody Elbowers (Bloddy Elbites? Bloody Elobowans?) do you plan on going to UFC 141? If so, where will you be traveling from? Also, do you have any extra money so that I don't have to go to a debt counselor? Or, do you know any good debt counselors? Would you like to buy my house for more than it would likely be appraised for?
You know, simple questions that any MMA fan could answer.
