One lucky fan, Milly of Toms River, NJ, was randomly selected from more than 75,000 entries as the 2015 grand prize winner of FRAM’s “Night Done Right” sweepstakes. FRAM, a leading U.S. oil filter brand, flew Milly to Las Vegas for an all-expenses paid trip to attend UFC® 189: MENDES vs. MCGREGOR, where she sat with Team FRAM fighters Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Johny “Bigg Rigg” Hendricks to take in the night’s bouts.
Milly also enjoyed VIP access to pre-fight weigh-ins and the UFC Fan Expo®. Team FRAM fighters Cerrone and Hendricks joined Milly for dinner before heading to see the UFC® 189: MENDES vs. MCGREGOR action at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
No. 1 UFC featherweight contender Chad Mendes stepped in to face Irish sensation Conor McGregor for the interim UFC featherweight title fight Saturday night, when UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo was forced to withdraw from his scheduled title defense due to injury. McGregor defeated Mendes in the second round of the main event by TKO (punches) to become the interim UFC featherweight champion. In the co-main event, UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler defeated Rory MacDonald to retain his welterweight title.
“We were thrilled to provide Milly with a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel to a UFC event flanked by our Team FRAM fighters Cowboy Cerrone and Bigg Rigg Hendricks,” said Rich Fleming, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for FRAM Filtration. “It’s not every day that our fans can take in a UFC welterweight bout while sitting next to the former welterweight champion. That’s what we’d call a night done right.”
In addition to the grand prize, five first prize winners received two sets of official UFC gloves – a pair signed by Hendricks and a pair signed by Cerrone. Twenty-five second prize winners received Team FRAM t-shirts.
