TMZ.com put out a ticket giveaway contest on Wednesday afternoon offering two tickets to Saturday's PPV show. The contest was regarding ‘Hero Cat,' who is the feline YouTube sensation that saved a boy from a dog.
Since the cat had been brought out to throw the first pitch at a minor league baseball game recently, the UFC chose to ride off the cat's supposed stardom and offer tickets to the fans who can provide the best baseball-related nickname for the cat.
"We nicknamed her Clayton Furrshaw ... and Justin Purrlander -- but people have been writing in saying they can do better. So, now it's time for you to put your money where your mouth is and come up with a better baseball nickname for Hero Cat ... and there's a pretty kick ass prize for the winner -- TWO TICKETS TO UFC 173: Barao vs. Dillashaw at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday May 24th.
"Submit your entries in the comments section ... and do it fast. We will pick the best baseball-themed cat nickname"
Here is the original video of the ‘hero cat' in action:
