Before I moved to Las Vegas in late October 2009, I already had a vested interest in the fighting city. This was due to of all the high-profile events that come through the town as well as because of the local support the city has towards the sport.

One thing I do wish I had seen more of the past five years, would be a flourishing fight series on the weekends. I remember having pulled up BoxRec.com and having seen the results of some local events at the Orleans, or the venue formerly known as the Hilton, and envisioning some great ballroom type action.
