A Confederacy of Thugs

Casinos are full of guys acting tough, and the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is no different. But tonight at 9:00, one group of guys won’t be acting. The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Hollywood, and the competitors will be kicking ass and taking names. Lightweights Sam Stout and Spencer Fisher headline the fight card, but with the recent reshuffling of UFC champions, more than one of the night’s bouts could have serious title implications. Stout defeated Fisher in March 2006 by a narrow split decision, but the fight was more memorable than the winner. It was nominated for UFC Fight of the Year in 2006. After his recent loss to lightweight powerhouse Kenny Florian, Stout will be looking to take out his frustrations on his opponent. And Fisher, who took part in yet another bout nominated for Fight of the Year in 2006, won’t be rolling over for anyone.

Tickets range from $50 to $250 and are available at the Hard Rock Live box office. Call 954-327-ROCK or visit www.ticketmaster.com, and then head up to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino tonight. Act tough for an hour or two at the poker tables, and then move on to Hard Rock Live to see the real action.
