Around the Octagon: Stars at UFC 150

The Mile-High City played host to a mile-long list of MMA notables Saturday night for UFC 150.
Psychic Star
Christopher "Big Black" Boykin sat front row as he waited for his favorite fight on the card, Donald Cerrone vs. Melvin Guillard. A Melvin Guillard fan, he said what he was most excited for was that the bout "won't go to the ground."

Afterparties

UFC 150's Buddy Roberts and Justin Lawrence attended an MMA Elite event at Suite 200...  Jackson's teammates Cowboy Cerrone and Erik "Goyito" Perez both scored knockouts with a combined fight time of 1 minute, 33 seconds. They celebrated afterward for far longer at the Jet Hotel with MusclePharm and BodyBuilding.com sponsors... Chris Camozzi and Amir Sadollah joined Ed Herman for his afterparty at bowling alley-slash-nightclub Lucky Strike.

False Advertising
Though he told Joe Rogan he'd be having an "after-party after-party," Submission of the Night winner Dennis Bermudez skipped the nightlife festivities, hit pads with Keith Trimble and went for a run.

Strikeforce Showing
One week out from his San Diego fight on Showtime, Lumumba Sayers donned a three-piece suit inside the Pepsi Center. Less dressy but still representing the brand were Conor Heun, wearing a Strikeforce tee; infamous BJJ trainer Jorge Gurgel, there cornering Tommy Hayden; and Tyler Stinson, who used his second-row spot to photobomb shots of Diego Sanchez.
