The Ultimate Fighting Championship and the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino have further bolstered July's historic UFC 100 weekend with a Limp Bizkit concert.

The rap-metal group performs on the eve of UFC 100, July 10, at Mandalay Bay Beach as part of its "Unicorns N' Rainbows" tour.

Tickets for the concert go on sale May 29, and the show also airs live on UFC.com.

To all the Bizkit haters out there- I understand your pain. I hated Limp Bizkit, too. HATED them.

Then, I saw them at Summer Sanitarium tour with Mudvayne, Deftones, Linkin Park, and Metallica. Limp Bizkit absolutely stole that show over every one of those bands, and rocked the LA Coliseum so hard that even though 90% of the fans were booing them when they walked out, 99.9% of them were cheering for an encore when they walked off. I don't know how they'll do now, but in person Limp Bizkit earned my respect as probably one of the greatest live acts I have ever seen.

I'm kind of surprised the UFC would add a concert to the show, but believe me- Limp Bizkit was truly awesome live. That's coming from a Bizkit hater

They're not on the actual show, they will perform on the Friday night.

Oh no, no, no, no, no!!!!!!

This is going to be worse than Quarry/Starnes! What would ever make someone think booking Limp Bizkit is a good idea? I hope they paid Dana a lot of money to play, enough money to sign Fedor, because they should be nowhere near this sport or near a stage for that matter.

Honestly ... I think I would rather have had Hannah Montana play at UFC 100 than these hacks (with the exception of Wes Borland who is a very impressive musician.)

They were a decent band when Wes Borland was their guitarist. That is a thing of the past. Their new guitarist is not creative, or as good by any means of the imagination. The UFC should not be a part of this, whether the show goes off the night before 100 or not. I always thought Dana was smarter than this. I am a Megadeth fan but thought that that took away from the initial Affliction show.

Yeah I would take Megadeath over the Biz anyday.
I got respect for Limp Bizkit,but they are for better or for worse a "fad" band.
Megadeath are metal legends.

WHHAAATT!!?? Limp Bizkit cannot even be considered metal at this point. They are way, WAY past their day.

Someone else mentioned Metallica, Soilwork, and In Flames....what about Lamb of God , or Throwdown
