UFC 100 Fan Expo: Vinny Magalhaes, Kimbo Slice and More

The UFC Fan Expo taking place next weekend in Las Vegas in conjunction with UFC 100 has added some star power, as the UFC has announced a series of grappling matches and appearances by Kimbo Slice and the rest of the cast of The Ultimate Fighter 10.

The grappling matches feature some of the best jiu jitsu players in the world, and I'm personally most excited about seeing Vinny Magalhaes, who appeared on the eighth season of The Ultimate Fighter. Magalhaes lackst the striking to compete in the UFC, but he's amazing on the ground. He'll be fun to watch, although the UFC hasn't yet said who he's facing.

Other participants in the grappling contests include the UFC's own Joe Stevenson, the WEC's Fredson Paixao and the Japanese Shooto fighter Rumina Sato. Here are the four match-ups:

Rumina Sato vs. Ulysses Gomez
Vinny Magalhaes vs. TBA
Fredson Paixao vs. Jeff Glover
Joe Stevenson vs. Bill Cooper

And then there's Kimbo, who along with the rest of the cast of The Ultimate Fighter 10, will meet the press and mingle with fans. The UFC is in a somewhat awkward situation there, because The Ultimate Fighter is currently filming, and the UFC won't want the fighters talking about the fights that have already taken place. But it'll still be fascinating to see Kimbo's first appearance at a major UFC event. If you're going to be in Las Vegas next weekend, you're in for a treat.
