While crossing paths with a Mixed Martial Artist in Las Vegas may not be an overly infrequent occurrence, the odds are certainly up for any fans visiting Sin City this week thanks to a Zuffa summit involving numerous fighters from both the UFC and WEC.

Representatives from the dual promotions included, but were not limited to, notable names such as Mauricio Rua, Yoshihiro Akiyama, “Minotauro” Nogueira, Rogerio Nogueira, Frank Edgar, Miguel Torres, Nate Diaz, Urijah Faber, Demian Maia, Tom Lawlor, Joe Lauzon, Mark Coleman, Mike Swick, Danny Castillo, Matt Serra, Muhsin Corbbrey, Frank Trigg, Junior dos Santos, Ben Henderson, and head-honchos Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta.

Well, it's possible, but I don't think this meeting is indicative of that happening. I remember them doing this before to discuss PED's, professionalism, and whatnot. It just sounds like they've expanded upon that and have an all encompassing get together. Maybe they'll be doing this annually now...kind of an all hands meeting. And it makes sense to bring both companies at once, to avoid doing it twice.

BJ Penn was posting a bunch of videos on his website that he was taking on his phone during the event. It looked like interesting content, but waaaaayyyy boring presentations. Things like the right/wrong way to cut weight, dangers of steroids...etc. You may need to register on BJ's site, but it's free.

It's great to hear about the UFC addressing issues like unhealthy wet cutting. Guys like Anthony Johnson really make me nervous
