UFC live event Newbie

I'm going to UFC 92 at the MGM Grand w/ my girlfriend Dec. 27th. I've never been to a live event. What should I expect? Also, i'm sitting up top. Will we still be able to see?

Not much, look at the jumbotron. Also, expect ignorant people to say ignorant things when you get there. It sucks, but make the most out of it. Also, get your girlfriend very drunk so she enjoys it...or atleast pretends to!

You will be able to see the standup fine. You might have to watch some of the jumbotron for some of the the ground game. Yes there will be retards who yell for standups the entire night.

The atmosphere will be the coolest thing, with guys like Forrest and Wanderlei there, the atmosphere should be great. The standup like rockybalboa said, should be fine, but when it hits the ground, you almost definitely benefit from looking at the tron.

The drunks are so annoying.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Pretty much what everyone said its really awesome though. The atmosphere and just being at an arena with so many jacked up fans is really amazing. Have fun.

I've never been to a live event either. But given the descriptions of watching stand-up vs ground game, it makes sense that fans yell for more stand-up.

Me, I love a good skilled ground war (not a stalemate in guard or a lay 'n' pray, of course). But I can see why rowdy drunk fans who pay $$$ for live tickets would want to be able to see what's actually going on.
