    Wear a full reebok kit and you have a common talking point, how you have contributed about 75 cents to their royalties

    Take off your clothes and run around in the lobby, screaming "Dana! I want the belt!"

    Just wear some Reebok UFC kit saying "Anderson Silva", and sign autographs.

    Running into is by accident, what you're asking us to do is help you stalk the fighters. Thanks but no thanks.

    I ran into a ton of fighters at the MGM the morning of UFC 125 when I went to get breakfast at this cafe at the casino. Forgot the name of the place but seems like the UFC chose that restaurant.

    Just walk around and you might run into some. When I was there for 197 I stayed at the MGM and I saw quite a few just walking around down towards the arena. I didn't get any pictures but I saw Mighty Mouse and Matt Hume, Nate and Nick, Sergio Pettis and whoever he fought that night, Yair Rodriguez. I don't know how long you're there but I saw more the day after the fights.

    Please! Many fighters go unrecognized by the general public and so at big events like these they like being recognized, meeting fans and taking pics. You see it all the time. They'll stroll outside the arena just hanging out to say hi.
