The 2010 UFC Fan Expo took place over the Memorial Weekend at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. This is the second Fan Expo that the UFC has ever premiered and it turned out to be a huge success. An estimated 125,000 fans came from all over the world to show their support and meet their favorite fighters throughout the two day expo.
A few highlights of the Expo was the induction of long time Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes to the UFC Hall of Fame. The Grappler’s Quest Competition also took place at the expo in which hundreds of contestants competed in multiple weight classes to be crowned Grappling Champions. In the competition’s super fights, Penny Thomas defeating Shayna Baszler and Bill Cooper defeating Hermes Franca. The main attraction, however, was the fighters themselves.
