Very excited.. Wednesday I'm going to Las Vegas and experiencing my first trip to Vegas along with my first live UFC event!

I'll throw some pictures and stories and whatnot on this thread, but before I go does anyone have any Vegas/UFC related tips? Would be greatly appreciated!

Vegas story....walked into a strip club, I asked for a Brazilian, and the stripper proceeded to give me the cheapest lap dance know to man.....

i got a free ride from San Diego to Vegas for a wedding
got to stay in a condo owned by the groom's mother for free
all the people in the wedding party kept buying my meals all weekend
i put $1 in a penny slot and won $20
got a ride back to San Diego with the same people for free.

I WENT TO VEGAS FOR FREE AND CAME BACK WITH $20 EXTRA!!!! probably will never happen again in my lifetime. every other time i went to Vegas was a complete shit show

If it looks close rough to walk to, it probably isn't. Take a cab.

pmoney loves some Las Vegas! If you want to try one of the best cigars known to man, hit up Casa Fuente in Caesar's Palace. Get an Anejo Shark or a Casa Fuente Lancero. Or some manner of Opus X. It's hard to go wrong there.

Beyond that, I don't have many tips... Bring lots of Febreze if you plan on bringing that devil's lettuce, you don't want to get caught up out there... Overall it's almost impossible to do Vegas wrong. If you are on a budget, you can find good find and drinks cheap, as casinos are tripping over each other for business. And if you got the dough, it's easy to ball out. Have fun brotha!

Appreciate the advice!!

Chael - you're damn right I'll see your ass.
Tcunningham - you lucky bastard.
SS - I plan on bringing some kind of sustenance to Vegas...
Fleek - Uber is one of my best friends
Pmoneymurda - I don't really have the dough to ball out.. but I'll see if I can follow up on a couple of those leads. worst case scenario i'll probably expend the lettuce in my car in the parking garage if no balcony at our room in the MGM Grand

but i'll be taking pics for everything. open workout, Q&A, weigh ins... i'll make a album on picasa or something so i dont flood this thread hah

I won't even drive to Vegas again
Almost got stuck there

Have fun.

Do not. I repeat do not meet up with any Vegas women
From Vegas. A lot of them are con artists and scammers

Make sure you check MGM before Friday
Usually they have a autograph session unannounced.

Don't buy alcohol at the casinos. Drive to a grocery store
Or liquor store way off the strip and stock up
You will save hundred dollars or more.

Don't pull your wallet out on the strip
If you go to weigh ins. Be prepared to wait in line for a few hours. In Vegas everyone gets there early.
