"UFC Fan Expo is a perfect opportunity for us to give devoted UFC and Round 5 fans the first look at the 'Versus' series," said Damon Lau, Round 5 co-founder and president. "We were overwhelmed by the response at last year's Expo, and we're pleased to be part of the show again, both to meet Round 5 fans and to introduce more die-hard UFC enthusiasts to our high-quality figurines."
Included in the "Versus" series are figurine pairs from the following bouts: Quinton "Rampage" Jackson vs. Wanderlei Silva (UFC 92), 12-27-2008; Georges St. Pierre vs. B.J. Penn (UFC 58), 3-4-2006; Frank Mir vs. Brock Lesnar (UFC 100), 7-11-2008; Tito Ortiz vs. Chuck Liddell (UFC 66), 12-30-2006; Ortiz vs. Liddell (TUF 11); Forrest Griffin vs. Stephan Bonnar ("The Ultimate Fighter®" Season Finale), 4-9-2005; and Jackson vs. Silva (PRIDE® 28), 10-31-2004.
In addition to viewing the "Versus" prototypes, fans will be able to purchase figurines in Round 5 "Ultimate Collector" Series 1 and 2, as well as add a Series 2 Limited Edition piece to their collections.
