The LA Review Journal has the celeb-list for UFC 114:

“The A-Team” is coming to town to support Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in his UFC 114 superfight Saturday. Co-stars Jessica Biel and Bradley Cooper will be adding their starpower to one of the largest celebrity contingents for a UFC event.

Also expected: Mike Tyson, Snoop Dogg, Forrest Whitaker, Sam Worthington of “Avatar,” New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs, NHL all-stars, comedian David Spade, “The A-Team” director Joe Carnahan and Daniel Sunjat of “Rescue Me.”

What, the King of Queens and Criss Angel no longer worth noting? And I think what we all really want to know is if Flava Flav and MC Hammer will be there. The UFC has been trying to climb up the celebrity fan totem pole for a while now, and while they still can’t compete with the stars that come out for Mayweather or Pacquiao fights, at least we’re going to beat Showtime’s celebrity haul for their Super Six events, which include far more people like Gary Shandling and the fat Cuban guy from Dexter than the occasional Charlize Theron.
