Pacquiao vs. Marquez 4 As rematches go, we’d love to see Pacquiao fight Timothy Bradley again after the ultra-controversial loss, but this is a close second. When these two fight, it’s always worth the price of admission. December 8, 3 p.m., $200-$1,200, MGM Grand.
Yoga Asana Championship It’s yogi vs. yogi at the Nevada Regional of this meditative “sport,” with competitors demonstrating five compulsories (rabbit pose!) and two postures of their choice within a three-minute window. Get ready to feel inflexible. December 8, 1 p.m., $25 adults, $10 children, Clark County Library.
