Rodriguez was seen at the Mandalay Bay Center in Las Vegas on Saturday night and was next to Ultimate Fighting Championship President and promoter Dana White, as A-Rod was a guest of White's while watching UFC 175.
White was in control of ESPN's SportsCenter Twitter account during the event on Saturday night and posted the picture with himself and A-Rod on ESPN's page just before the main event fight between Chris Weidman and Lyoto Machida; Weidman won the fight and retained his UFC Middleweight Championship.
Rodriguez is currently serving a 162-game suspension in 2014 due to the aftermath of the Biogenesis case in which he was accused of purchasing and using performance enhancement drugs; thus why he has some free time on his hands and is able to attend a UFC event during the middle of the Yankees regular season.
Rodriguez will be eligible to return to the Yankees for the 2015 season and it's been reported that A-Rod wants to return to the Yankees and the Yankees will have their third basemen back as long as he can still play baseball.
