So, I just arrived...and just saw Robbie Lawler in the lobby. I wonder if that means that Big Tim is staying in my hotel.

Anyway, I've never been to Cincinnati, so does anyone have any recomendations on what restaurants to hit...or any must-see's while I'm here?

Also, this is my first live event...so, any advice for a first timer is welcome as well...i.e. how early I should arrive at any of the events like weigh-ins or the autograph session, etc.

If you can find Bogarts you might catch a decent show for 15 bucks.

Don't know how long your staying or if the Bengals play at home, but the NFL Team the Cinncinatti Bangals have a great exciting offense and they would be fun to watch. But besides seeing 77 I have no clue...Just have fun

Head over to Newport on the Levee. Its just right across river... sounds far, but its only like a 5 minute car ride (or cab) from downtown cincy. Theyre having an American Fighter party over there right now at Jefferson Hall(Its a bar inside of Newport on the Levee). Matt Hamill and some others will be there. As far as tomorrow goes with the weigh ins... they start at 3 but there is an autograph session with Wanderlei and some others at 1 pm. Im prolly gonna get there around 12:45, but if I were you I would try to get there around 12. Im sure there is gonna be some crazy lines and crowds. Let me know if you wanna know anything else. Have fun man. Cincy f'n rocks. Make sure you take advantage of all of our food, like Skyline chilli and graeters ice cream and Montgomery INN ribs and LaRosas pizza.

Is there anywhere in cincy Showing the fight. Not the usual Hotters a Buf wild wings? A few of us were thinking about makin the trip on sat. to be in the town to see the fight and are there any after partys. I know in columbus they had the fight at that frog bear bar right beside nationwide we went there after the fight but decided not to get tickets now we want to be around the action.

The Montgomery Rib place known as the Boathouse on the Waterfront is a great restaurant. It's a little expensive--but so is the UFC so I'll assume it's not a big deal for this weekend. Mount Adams also has a lot of nice places, closely packed together with a great view of the city.

Thanks for all of the info. Having a good time and meeting a lot of fighters. Just got back from the bar...there were a number of guys there...BJM, Hammil, Florian, Goldy, Sherk, etc. I'll probably post some pics once the weekend is done.

Dont try and kiss Robbie Lawler.
Frank Trigg did and look what happened to him.
