The UFC has a big fight this Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena with Ireland’s Conor McGregor facing off with the United States' Chad "Money" Mendes for the interim UFC featherweight title.

Lagasse’s Stadium gets in on the action with The Ultimate Cookoff, a chance for four UFC fighters to put their culinary skills to the test.

The event comes to the Palazzo on Thursday, July 9, at 7 p.m. Athletes get a mystery box of ingredients and have the opportunity to transform their foods into a signature dish that will be judged by fight fans, foodies and a special celebrity chef.

UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum, UFC fighter CM Punk, UFC welterweight contender Johny Hendricks and UFC middleweight contender Luke Rockhold compete for the honors.
