LAS VEGAS (June 22, 2011)— XYIENCE, the maker of Xenergy, the official energy drink of the UFC®, and the ABC Store, invite mixed martial arts (MMA) fans to meet XYIENCE team athletes, Mark Munoz and Anthony Pettis, who fight in the UFC’s middleweight and lightweight divisions, respectively. Munoz and Pettis will be signing autographs at the ABC Store located in the Fashion Show Mall (3200 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas) on Saturday, July 2, 2011 from noon to 2 p.m. The event coincides with UFC® 132: Cruz vs. Faber, that will also take place on July 2 at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand.
“As a fighter, coming to Las Vegas is a special experience. The locals love MMA and on a UFC weekend, the entire city is fired up,” says Munoz, who secured a victory by decision over Demian Maia, at UFC 131® Dos Santos vs. Carwin in Vancouver on Saturday, June 11. “Many thanks to XYIENCE for putting this event together. Anthony and I are looking forward to meeting the fans and getting everyone psyched for UFC 132.”
Pettis is especially looking forward to being in Las Vegas, as later that evening his XYIENCE teammate Wanderlei Silva faces Chris Leben in a middleweight bout.
“Silva has always been one of my favorite fighters,” says the 24-year old who captured the final World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) Lightweight title in Dec. 2010. (The WEC later merged with the UFC) “I’m excited to be back in Las Vegas and invite all the local and visiting fans to come out and meet Mark and me on Saturday.”
