INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - UFC is taking over Bankers Life Fieldhouse this week as the fights return to Indiana for only the second time ever on Wednesday night.
The fighters took part in open workouts in front on fans on Monday afternoon, including one famous face: Pacers’ center Roy Hibbert.
Hibbert, who is a huge UFC fan, took a break from his offseason workouts to come down and meet the fighters. He even traded a pair of autographed sneakers for a pair of autographed gloves from Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone.
"I watch the Ultimate Fighter all the time, when I'm on the road. [I] try to catch as many pay-per-view fights as I can, but it's nice to be able to see one up close and personal,” said Hibbert. “I work out Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, so Wednesday is my day off so I get to just relax come in and just watch these guys perform."
The main event is a rematch between Carlos Condit and Martin Kampmann, who promise a good show.
“Bad a** card, we’ve got some bad a** fighters going up against each other, and it’s gonna make a hell of a show, so they’re in for a treat,” said Kampmann.
In court documents filed Monday afternoon, 20-year-old Jacob McDaniel was officially charged with reckless homicide and pointing a firearm in the shooting death of a Noblesville teen.
Sunday night, Johnson County officers were called to a Whiteland home, when a woman called to say she was being attacked by her 18-year-old grandson.
Work began in the old Indianapolis City Hall on Monday morning.
