Big Boys / Hey, dudes? Tired of sitting around with the missus at arts and crafts conventions? Getting carpal tunnel from checking the Casio at bridal fairs? Finally an expo just for you is coming to the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall. Get ready for the Big Boys & MMA Hawaii Expo.

Headlining this monster event of swaggering masculinity will be an appearance by UFC 114 winner “Suga” Rashad Evans. Also featured are live cage fights and grappling tournaments with a roster of familiar banging talent brought to you by Legacy Combat.

In addition to the fights, more than 100 testosterone-y vendors will show off their wares, all with products and services geared toward men. There’s also gonna be custom cars and motorcycles, electronics and gadgets, tattoo art, the Miss MMA Hawaii contest, a beer garden, a cigar lounge and many more toys for boys. Other can’t miss moments of machismo include a bikini contest, a lingerie show and the snarling canines in the American Bully Dog Show.

Live entertainment includes local music staples The Throwdowns, Anuhea and YOZA.

Yeah, it’s basically a year’s subscription to Maxim come to life.

Blaisdell Center Exhibition Hall, Fri & Sat 6/11 & 12, 11am-9pm, $10-$35, [hawaiibigboysshow.com]
