UFC Fan Expo In Torento Is Gonna Be HUGE!!
 
Quote:

Do you have a question for Ultimate Fighting Championship president Dana White or UFC legend Chuck Liddell? Heres your chance to ask it.

UFC on Wednesday announced its line-up for Q & A sessions during its Fan Expo next week, which runs in conjunction with UFC 129 in Toronto. UFCs debut in Ontario will take place April 30 in front of 55,000 fans at Rogers Centre. The company scheduled a Fan Expo to run in the 48 hours leading up to the fight card, giving fans the chance to get photos and autographs from, and interact with, virtually every top fighter or personality from UFC and Strikeforce.

The Q & A line-up for April 29 includes UFC announcer Bruce Buffer (10 a.m.), Dana White (12:30 p.m.), colour commentator Joe Rogan and play-by-play man Mike Goldberg (2 p.m.), and Chuck Liddell (4:30 p.m.).

Scheduled for Q & As on April 30 are referee Herb Dean (11 a.m.), UFC director of Canadian operations Tom Wright (12:30 p.m.), and Strikeforce star and former NFL standout Herschel Walker (2 p.m.).


I always enjoy interacting with the fans and Im excited to host a Q & A at the UFC Fan Expo, said Dana White in a statement.

Im glad that fans will have the chance to talk to Buffer, Rogan, Chuck, Herb, Tom and Herschel as well. This is a cool opportunity for fans to connect with the top names in this sport and its all a part of delivering the ultimate experience.

The Fan Expo is expected to draw well over 50,000 people during the two-day affair at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto.

Among those scheduled for the Fan Expo are current heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, middleweight champ Anderson Silva, bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz, along with UFC Hall-of-Famers Liddell and Royce Gracie. Also announced in recent weeks were former heavyweight champion Frank Mir, ex-light heavyweight champ Rashad Evans, former lightweight and welterweight champ BJ Penn, MMA legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Josh Koscheck, Ryan Bader, Stephan Bonnar, Shane Carwin, Matt Mitrione, Brendan Schaub, Jon Fitch, Miguel Angel Torres, Anthony Pettis, Clay Guida, Joe Lauzon, Cole Miller, Sam Stout, Carlos Condit and Jonathan Brookins.

Matches scheduled for UFC 129 include Canadian superstar Georges St-Pierre putting his welterweight title on the line against Jake Shields, featherweight champion Jose Aldo taking on Ontario native Mark Hominick and UFC Hall-of-Famer Randy Couture meeting former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida.
Lol @ Koscheck being there.

I should be going there with some Ability stuff to give away on the 29th :)

Even without the Ability stuff I want to go, I am thinking of getting everyones picture printed out so I can leave the expo with a stack of autographs. :)

I'll be sure to post any pics that I get with these guys. I went with the two day expo package to make sure and not miss out on any of the fighters as lineups will surely be long.

Herschel Walker, a Strikeforce Fighter at a UFC Fan Expo and not as a customer. Thats when you know that the times have changed.

Damnit I hate being jealous :P

Can't wait for Dana to man up and be serious about his "international" ideas ;)

LMAO! :happy02:

Not quite like that man...:p

I'm just a big fan.
1stly: I love Jon Jones - the fighter. I've watched Jones since his first fight and i've thought: so much talent and skill...this guy will be champ as soon as he gets the chance. And i was so right.
2ndly: i think Jon Jones - the person - is a cool guy. I've seen this attitude in the another guy i admire a lot: 9 time Moto GP World Champion - Valentino Rossi - that guy is EPIC on 2 wheels. I've been watching him since his debut also - since 1997 - and he always manages to amaze me.

Also, you should understand: i would love to go to a UFC event or fan expo, but i'm here - more than 7,000 miles away - so it's *a bit* hard for me to do that.
Maybe in the near future.

So...if my *bestest* friend - Intermission :D - goes there, he might be able to secure an autograph for me...and we'll see how i get my hands on it afterwards. :)

Have a nice one. :thumbsup:
