Attendees of the UFC Fan Expo® this week in Las Vegas can enjoy one more very special perk, now that promoters Sampson Boxing and Greg Cohen Promotions have come up with a special ticket deal for their “Moment of Truth” boxing show at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Friday night (July 6).
By presenting a ticket stub to any UFC Fan Expo® event or a ticket to the next night’s UFC 148 event, to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino box office, fight-sport fans can buy a boxing ticket for half price or get two tickets for the price of one on any $29, $44 or $104 tickets.
UFC Fan Expo® events end at 6:00 pm, so get your fill and then head over to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and catch the exciting preliminary fights until the ESPN Friday Night Fights-televised action begins at 7:00 pm.
It’s a chance to end a day of celebrating one combat sport with an edge-of-your-seat live experience in another for a very specially discounted price. Or, if you have tickets to Saturday’s UFC, you can make a true Vegas weekend by spending both nights at the fights.
And fans, if you love hard-hitting action, then you’ll love “The Moment of Truth”.
The explosive night of professional boxing will feature red-hot featherweight prospect Javier “El Abejon” Fortuna (19-0, 14 KOs) of La Romana, Dominican Republic, stepping in against the toughest opponent he’s ever faced in former IBF Featherweight World Champion Cristobal “Lacandón” Cruz (39-13, 23 KOs) of Chiapas, Mexico, live on ESPN Friday Night Fights.

It’s a sensational night of boxing we have lined up, so come and enjoy it for a very special price.”
