UFC in Baltimore?

So is UFC the new hot sport for frat guys to watch?

And if so, where do you go around town to watch it? I was at Club X Ultra Lounge on Calvert Street (before it became Xanadu) about a year or so ago, and they had UFC on.

I have no problem with UFC (it is, after all, my generation's boxing), but I don't think high-end lounges should be showing it. The last thing I want to see is two dudes kicking the crap out of each other when I'm spending tons of money to hang out in a trendy club.

I know Fletchers in Fells Point advertises their UFC. But are there bars that specialize in it, and advertise themselves as UFC go-to spots?

the first rule of UFC is no one talks about UFC.

the second rule of UFC is no one talks about UFC.

watch it at home! I want to know if there will be a live show here in baltimore anytime soon?

to my knowledge there are at least 4 other spots that carry the UFC fights.

1. Frank and Nic's near the stadium

2. Pratt Street Ale Hous

3. Don't Know Tavern on Light Street

4. I saw an ad for the Greene Turtle for UFC 109 and 110.

And the Field House is showing the fight this Saturday as well.

I caught a match at Horse you Came in on (Rode in on? I can never remember the right name...) about a year ago. It is something I never understood until I actually watched some of it. It's like a trainwreck; you can't turn away! Now I'm kinda hooked.

I heard there was a UFC match at The Horse, but it wasn't on TV.

use should come to baltimore md so i can go to a ufc fight
