The Seminole Casino Coconut Creek is quickly establishing itself as the ultimate destination for local MMA fans, broadcasting vital mixed-martial-arts fights live at no cost nearly every weekend to the delight of the full-contact-combat sport's feverish aficionados. This weekend is no exception; the casino is bringing in Rashad "Suga" Evans, winner of Spike TV's reality show The Ultimate Fighter 2 for a free meet and greet. At 8:30 p.m., Evans, a former UFC light-heavyweight champion, will take the casino's center stage, where he will be signing autographs and taking pictures with fans. Followers of this anything-goes fighting style will not only have a chance to rub elbows with "Suga" but also have an opportunity to watch a fight alongside the accomplished athlete. Immediately after the meet and greet, Evans will join fans in watching the UFC 158 broadcast of Georges "Rush" St-Pierre versus Nick Diaz at the casino's Stax Poker Lounge.
The "Suga" handshakes take place on Saturday from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the center stage area of the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, located at 5550 NW 40th St. in Coconut Creek. The event is free to attend. Visit seminolecoconutcreekcasino.com, or call 866-2CASINO.
