Fight week is coming to a close as we pass midnight here in East Rutherford, New Jersey. And I am so excited about this tournament. Maybe it’s because I really like saying Grand Prix. It sounds sophisticated.
Also, it’s fucking great. This week has been a good chance to meet a lot of fans and spend a lot of time in New York City, which is always a good thing.
I’ve compiled images from the entire week, ending with two portraits from Fedor and Antonio.
I’m curious who everyone is picking to win this tournament! Who do you think? Let us know in the comments while I charge up all my batteries and clean my lenses for what is going to be a fantastic night of fights at the Izod Center. Don’t forget to tune in on Showtime or show up out here at the Meadowlands Sports Complex.
Casey also shot this video with Ariel, of fans, fighters, and journalists’ picks at the Fan Experience in case you’re worried about committing to a pick — all these people did!
