So who wants a pair of free tickets to the 2010 World MMA Awards in Las Vegas?

So who wants a pair of free tickets to the 2010 World MMA Awards in Las Vegas?

The official 2010 Fighter’s Only World MMA Award Show goes down in six days, nine hours, thirty-eight minutes and eighteen seconds (depending on if you immediately read this article the moment it’s published, of course) and it’s time to give away free schwag to all of you for the sole fact that I love you. The Palms Casino hooked up one lucky reader with a pair of free WEC 52 tickets earlier this month and that lucky person witnessed one of the last WEC shows in the history of MMA, compliments of MiddleEasy and The Palms Casino. Now, it’s time to give away a pair of tickets to the 2010 Fighter’s Only World MMA Award Show and hopefully you will be able to be in the presence of another drunk Diego Sanchez.

As mentioned in our last contest, this is only open to people who live in the Nevada area or people willing to stock up on 5-hour energy drinks and attempt to drive to Las Vegas in some ridiculous caffeinated haze.

In order to win a pair of tickets to the 2010 Fighter’s Only World MMA Award Show at the Palm Casino, write who you think will win in each category in the MMA award show in the comment section in this article. Even if you don’t plan on attending, just predict who you think will win each category and after the event is over, we will see how many of you have clairvoyant abilities (and no, I don’t expect Joey Jo Jo to get any picks correct). There’s also still time to vote on the official award show site, and don’t worry about MiddleEasy not being nominated for award. We would never hawk our readers to vote for us, we already know how cool we are. No confirmation is needed.

If you consume far too many alcoholic beverages and would like to crash at The Palms for the night, hotel rates are relatively reasonable.
