UFC President Dana White

How would you like to be UFC president Dana White’s (Pictured) best friend for a day? Well, that’s not the unprecedented prize the planet’s premier mixed martial arts organization is giving away, but it’s about as close as a fanboy can get to rubbing elbows with MMA’s big boss without actually being his BFF.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship has partnered with Ultimate Poker to determine which Octagon fan is their best card shark.

This is what the UFC has pushed to the center of the pot:

A trip to Las Vagas to attend UFC 151, which includes first-class airfare, luxury hotel suite accommodations, limousine access, cash, cageside seats next to White, and the pièce de résistance, you get to enter the Octagon and slap the UFC light heavyweight title belt around the waist of the winner between Jon Jones and Dan Henderson.

Go to UltimatePoker.com to register for the poker tournament.

“UFC 151: Jones vs. Henderson” takes place September 1st inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Nevada.

Here is the card’s current roster:

Takeya Mizugaki vs. Jeff Hougland

Dennis Siver vs. Eddie Yagin

Danny Castillo vs. Michael Johnson

Dan Henderson vs. Jon Jones (UFC light heavyweight champion)
