Beer, chicken wings, curly fries, bacon cheeseburger, and girls in orange Dolfin shorts — yup, that would be Hooters. Oh yeah, they happened to be showing the big UFC 66 fight between Chuck Liddel and Tito Ortiz as well that drew a capacity crowd of 14,607 at MGM, with a $5.4M live gate, a record for martial arts.
If you’re wondering…Liddel kicked his ass (as predicted)! TKO with about a minute left in the 3rd round. There were some good undercard fights as well — the biggest upset was Forest Griffin losing to Keith Jardine.
Next up — Georges St Pierre vs Matt Serra in UFC 67 on Feb 3 at Mandalay Bay.
