UFC 110 Viewing Party to be Held at Mardi Gras Casino

A viewing party to watch the UFC 110 match between Nogeuira (shown above) and Velasquez will be held for free at the Mardi Gras Casino on Saturday night.

When Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Cain Velasquez step into the octagon for the main event at this weekend’s UFC 110, it will be a match that spans the best of two different generations. Many UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) fans will be watching, and a local casino in South Florida is throwing a viewing party.

Mardi Gras Casino not only is dealing with the big party in New Orleans that bears its name this week, but it is also preparing for what could be a legendary fight, one that could alter the future of the heavyweight division in the sport.

The under-card may have some excitement, but it is Nogueira and Velasquez that will pull patrons of Mardi Gras away from the slot machines late Saturday night.

At 10PM, Mardi Gras will tune in on its 16′ HD screen. Available during the festivities will be a $10 UFC food buffet.

Seating is limited for this viewing, and will be given out on a first come, first serve basis. No cover will be charged, so anyone that is enjoying the slots and poker at the casino is welcome to watch the mixed martial arts fight.

UFC 110 was the second fastest sellout in UFC history and that could have a lot to do with the location of the event. While most of the UFC events are held in the US, this one is being held in Sydney, Australia. The country’s fans do not get to see many of these events live, and they might be doing some investigative work into the sport that has taken the US by storm.

The main event is a match between the Brazilian legend, Nogueira, and the undefeated Velasquez. As was the case years ago with boxing, this top match is too close to call. Nogueira has the reputation of being a warrior who can withstand an onslaught and still come out on top. He proved he is worthy of the heavyweight division when he beat Randy Couture at UFC 102.

Velasquez, on the other hand, must prove to his doubters that he can handle moving into the heavyweight division. Although he is undefeated, this is his first fight as a heavyweight, and all eyes will be on his every move. At his best, Velasquez can dominate a match.

Anyone looking for more information on the viewing party for UFC 110, can contact Mardi Gras Casino at 954-924-3200. The casino is located at 831 North Federal Highway in Hallandale Beach, Florida.
