I had the unique opportunity to check out the UFC 146 weigh-ins before the fight on Saturday. The all heavyweight main card lived up to the anticipated hype with many of the fights finishing with a knockout or submission. It was quite the Memorial Day weekend in Vegas full of MMA action and after hour parties. If you follow me on Instagram (@john_pangilinan) then you may have seen the adventure from the weigh-ins, food fest, Steve Aoki and Lil Jon (more to come) and Stereo Saturdays at Lavo w/ DJ Reflex and Sean Kingston.
