    I got the same email but I have been in contact with the lady in charge of the event. Winners will be attending the weigh-ins on Friday night!!! All transportation from hotel to the event will be taken care of by DK. I live in MA so my travel costs were much less. My guess is after the weigh-ins there will be a DK “welcome party”. Can’t wait to meet the regulars on here. Really hope some of you guys get the Q for NFL. I still think DK put this in the lobby without much planning; but they are making the best of it.

    The person who contacted you previously ran KM. I had an opportunity to go to the Weigh-Ins as well for the Orlando Card, though was still in transit. I would definitely make these weigh ins. Should be photo ops aplenty with the Octagon Girls!

    Hola, I was fortunate enough to win a seat this weekend in the NFL $4 qualifier. Looking forward to meeting the other winners in NYC

  • Stratford17

    Congrats. Emailed Christie today and the itinerary is coming Monday. Can’t wait.

    She must like you more Stratford! I got nothing back from her about it. Once in a lifetime opportunity to attend the event (not so much the $)

  • ChipsWarMedals

    Haha I couldn’t get a response either. Excited to get the itenary for the weekend. Anyone been to a live final and have some ideas what to expect? Getting to see these fights will be worth it alone. I was also fortunate to win the UFC 194 experience last year, and saw Conor’s one punch KO of Aldo. That was an incredible card and this should certainly surpass that.

  • Stratford17

    I am charming.

    I was just sending her my travel plans as she had asked, I’ve been poking around a little bit and mentioned all the UFC events for the week. I think she was just reassuring me that there would be a plan.

  • BigMarley3

    Looking forward to meeting you guys there. I will be looking at my email all day long to check for that itinerary if it is supposed to be emailed out today. I’ve never been to NYC so want to know/make plans asap. Congrats on qualifying, fellas!

  • zelda3024

    Again Congrats to you all who made it. I counted only seven seats there was suppose to be eight, does anyone know if they plan on having the 8th qualifier? I know the last NFL one they had only filled up around 1600 seats out of 2400.

  • BigMarley3

    Thanks, again! I would think they will save the last seat for MMA this weekend. Good luck!

    Ughhh this is getting aggravating. I need to extend my hotel for Sunday. Hoping this itinerary comes soon.

  • BigMarley3

    Amen. The wait is killing me.

  • ChipsWarMedals

    I found out we will be staying at the Loews in NYC. I also received an email yesterday saying that the itinerary would be coming later that day, but to this point still have not received it.

  • ChipsWarMedals

    I was under the impression we were GOING to the weigh-ins not just watching them at the hotel. Slightly disappointed if we are not attending the weigh-ins. The hotel is absolutely awesome!

  • BigMarley3

    Apparently they aren’t doing an 8th seat. That contest they gave to The MMA Hour is replacing that seat and they gave the ticket to New York Ric and the “random” person he chooses from the video contest. Pretty lame. I would assume that makes 6th and 7th place payouts $1,500 each.

  • ChipsWarMedals

    What contest does mma hour have going, that would b fine with me if they bumped up 6-7th and it being a 7player contest. Don’t like the idea of the 8th spot being given to anyone, considering the money I put into winning this seat over the various contests

  • BigMarley3

    Agreed. They just have to send a 1 minute video to Ric and DK saying why the deserve to go. Lots of people of spent a bunch of money on this Q so should be an earned ticket, not given.
