The UFC didn’t actually choke out the X Games, but if the two were to fight we’re pretty sure the UFC would make X Games tap out pretty easily, unless it was a backflip contest and then X Games would dominate.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship is bringing the UFC experience to fans with the Octagon Nation Tour, an interactive tour where consumers can test their skills, check out the UFC gaming station featuring an exclusive preview of the Xbox Kinect UFC Trainer Experience, meet UFC fighters and visit the memorabilia exhibition featuring 18 years of UFC history.
Taking photos and signing autographs with the fans is the Godfather of the UFC Chuck “the Iceman” Liddell. He is the former UFC light heavyweight champion and has had 23 fights with the UFC. The Iceman is widely credited for bringing mixed martial arts to the mainstream – kind of like the Tony Hawk of UFC.
Liddell was on hand to greet the masses as they lined up outside the giant 18 wheeler mobile exhibit.
On Friday at X Fest Dominick Cruz current UFC No. 1 Bantamweight champ out of San Diego with a current record of 18 and 1 will be on hand to sign autographs from 3:00pm- 5:00 pm. He will also be presenting the Moto X Freestyle Medals to the winners on Friday Night at the LA Live Plaza.
