I bet you didn't see that coming! In one of the biggest UFC® cards of the year, light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier became the second fighter in UFC history to hold two belts at the same time after knocking out heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic in the first round of Saturday's main event.
With the amazing event now in the history books, lets look at the weekend experience of our VIP guests that included Meet and Greets with fighters, behind-the-scenes access, and once-in-a-lifetime moments.
UFC 226 Weigh-Ins
If you think UFC fighters look big on your TV screens, just imagine how colossal these titans looked to our VIP guests who sat perched in their reserved seats right in front of the scale for Friday's weigh-ins. Our guests were treated to quite the sight as heavyweights Francis Ngannou and Derrick Lewis stared into one another's soul, and as Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier faced off for the most important stare down of the calendar year.
BEHIND-THE-SCENES MEET & GREET
While UFC's best and brightest duked it out in The Octagon®, our guests got to meet other fighters from all around the world who weren't on the card! Our guests got to grab photos and chat it up with names like Stephen Thompson, Chris Weidman, Rashad Evans, Chuck Lidell, Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Kelvin Gastelum, Kamaru Usman and Ashley Evans-Smith.
INSIDE THE OCTAGON
After the dust settled from the main event, titles had been won and the UFC world stood shocked as Brock Lesnar entered The Octagon to challenge new heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier. And while most people aren't big enough to follow in the footsteps of Lesnar, our VIPs were! After the commotion ended and everyone had left the cage, our VIPs were able to enter The Octagon and feel a rush unlike any other. They had the opportunity to get their pictures taken and soak in the emotion of being inside the cage.
