UFC 100 is one fight card you will not want to miss. With championship bouts between heavyweights Frank Mir and Brock Lesnar and welterweights Georges St. Pierre and Thiago Alves, so much is on the line at this landmark event. As if that isn’t enough, you can watch Dan Henderson and Michael Bisping settle their score from their time as coaches on The Ultimate Fighter.
If you’re in it for the ring girls (let’s face it, they’re hot) then you will be in for a special treat. Las Vegas Strip performer and Playboy model Holly Madison of Peepshow will be a guest ring girl for Saturday’s Mandalay Bay throwdown. She’s also performing that night at Planet Hollywood, so tune in early so as not to miss her sashaying around the Octagon in the skimpy UFC ring girl bikini.
If you didn’t get tickets for this monumental fight (and most of you probably didn’t), no worries. There are several venues around town offering viewing parties plus a plethora of pre-parties and afterparties hosted by the fighters and UFC figureheads. At all the Station Casino locations, you can watch the fights for a $20 cover. Several PTs and Sierra Gold locations will be offering Mickey’s Malt Liquor specials and deals on shots throughout the event.
