Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman II, Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate II, and now Josh Barnett vs. Travis Browne. Throw in a little drunken $5 buy-in blackjack at the MGM Grand, some unplanned run-ins with @JennyFriedman1, entirely overpriced cocktails at Centrifuge, and the sudden realization that you could have received the same drink for free if you would have just stayed at the $5 blackjack table and you have yourself a highly eventful New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas. Well technically the card is going down December 28th, but it is ZUFFA’s quintessential ‘New Year’s Eve’ card. Also, RIP Dynamite! and their freak show-filled NYE events. Those days will never happen again. Feel free to shed a tear. I know I did.
There you have it, Josh Barnett vs. Travis Browne at UFC 168 was announced by the Las Vegas Review-Journal today, which gives you just one more reason to book you ticket to Las Vegas on December 28th. Check out the official poster for the event. It looks like the UFC is going for a new aesthetic, and it’s pretty refreshing.
