General comments:

  • Best GA seats I ever had.  Very happy with the whole seat purchasing process and where I’m sitting. Well done.
  • Quite possibly the best anthem singer I’ve ever heard at a live MMA event.
  • The ring announcer,  not sure what his name is, sure is something special.  I think he’s auditioning for Iron Chef or a poorly dubbed Asian martial arts movie. Very good venue.  4 huge screens,  HD footage,  and great lighting of the ring.  High quality show.
