While Los Angeles is not too far away, a weekend trip and a UFC 104 admission ticket aren’t in the cards for every MMA fan this weekend. If you’re looking for local viewing options, there are plenty. Some Station Casino locations and sports bars and lounges will be showing the fight and offering food and drink specials.

The main event features karate specialist Lyoto Machida in his first title defense after capturing the light heavyweight belt from former champ Rashad Evans. He’ll take on former Pride standout, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, coming off of two TKO wins. Other fights not to miss include Cain Velasquez taking on Ben Rothwell and Joe Stevenson vs. Spencer Fisher. The undercard fights include matchups between Antoni Hardonk and Pat Berry and Yushin Okami and Chael Sonnen. You can catch the fights at one of the local venues listed below.
