Saturday evening, Ultimate Fighter Season 1 star and top welterweight contender, Josh Koscheck, hosted a live UFC 116 viewing party inside Lagasse’s Stadium at The Palazzo Las Vegas.
Koscheck kicked off the evening by welcoming the sold out crowd and sharing his feelings of there being a 50/50 chance on who would win the main event, Lesnar or Carwin. When asked who the fans should put their money on for the main event Koscheck evoked a loud cheer from the crowd when he answered, “Bet on me,” hinting at the outcome of his upcoming fight against welterweight champion George St. Pierre (GSP). He went on to predict that he would beat GSP in the second round by knockout.
Comfortably dressed in a white t-shirt and jeans, Koscheck spent the evening signing autographs, posing for fan photos and dining on Emeril Lagasse’s renowned cuisine. Along with his group of 20 friends, Koscheck dined on filet minion, chicken Caesar salad, French fries and hummus and cocktails made with Cazadores tequila.
Heartthrob and Glee star, Mark Salling, also stopped by Lagasse’s Stadium to take in the action. He and a group of friends watched the main event inside a VIP Skybox.
With over 100 HD TV’s and plush stadium seating, Lagasse’s Stadium is the ultimate venue for fans to catch their favorite sports events including mixed martial arts.
