UFC debuted its first fight in 1993, but women weren’t allowed to rock the cage until almost a decade later when UFC President Dana White signed Ronda Rousey in 2012 (if you don’t know who Rousey is, you must literally not have a pulse or you’re Amish). Since then, the women’s division has taken the UFC by storm, with White saying that signing women was the best decision he ever made. Considering he laughed and said “Never” when a reporter asked him in 2011 about when women would compete in the sport, that means a lot. Fighting isn’t just for the boys anymore… and neither is watching fights.

Las Vegas is home to several high-profile MMA training centers and is a frequent site for UFC events. That means you’ll be able see some of the most exciting clashes in sports.

UFC Women are Badass

If you have a chance to see a fight in Vegas, you’re going to see some seriously badass women… and men, too. With fighters like Ronda Rousey, Holly Holm and Meisha Tate in the octagon, shit is intense. It’s truly inspiring to see women do something that take so much strength emotionally and physically, and do it better than the boys.

The Atmosphere

While going out to a bar or watching a fight from your own living room is definitely entertaining, there’s nothing like being in the actual arena. The energy of the crowd adds another dimension to make it an unforgettable experience.

Celeb Sightings

If you’re able to see a title match, chances are you’ll be amongst celebs. Seeing the fighters in person is exciting, but an added bonus is that celebrities of all sorts frequent UFC fights — that’s the cherry on top of an epic event. The likes of Mel Gibson, Charlize Theron and even the Biebs have been known to grab seats around the octagon.

One Ticket, Lots of Fights

Unless you’re baller enough to go to a title match (where tickets range from several hundred to thousands of dollars), UFC can be a highly entertaining and affordable way to spend an evening. You get lots of bang for your buck since there are 8 to 10 fights per event. You can get there in time for the first match and pregame for the big one.

Basically, if you have the chance to see a UFC fight while you’re in Vegas, you should go. Don’t be a DNB.
