The Ultimate Fighting Championship has grown up in Las Vegas and the biggest professional mixed martial arts group is headquartered here. But it's still rare to find two Las Vegans fighting at the top of the card. But that is what will happen Saturday night at UFC 130 when Roy "Big Country" Nelson takes on Frank Mir. Both fighters tell us why Las Vegas is the place for mixed martial arts.
