Would you like to sit with the president of the UFC and a powerful senator at UFC 116 next weekend? Because you can. If you are the lucky winner, you will sit with Dana White and Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. White posted this message on Reid's website:

UFC 116 features one of the most explosive Heavyweight Championship contests in UFC history. I’ll be sitting with Nevada’s own Harry Reid, the Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate, and the winner of this contest, and I can’t wait. Harry is a supporter and a fan of the sport, and UFC 116 is an awesome opportunity to show him how the sport has grown and how it’s bringing fight fans to Las Vegas. The winner of this contest is going to have a great look at two of the biggest and best strikers in the sport, and an undercard that won’t disappoint.

It's impressive that White still manages to push the fight while also patting Reid's back. To enter, go to this website and enter your cell-phone number.

This brings up so many questions. What do you talk about with Reid and White? The budget deficit? Cleaning up the Gulf of Mexico? Bringing a hockey team to Las Vegas? I hope that a Cagewriter reader gets to find out what comes up in conversation with the Senate majority leader and the head of the UFC, because I have to agree with Yahoo! Sports' own Kevin Iole. This is one strange pairing.
