Swing through the GNC Store in Roosevelt Field Mall this Saturday (June 4) between 1-4 p.m. and meet Strikeforce light heavyweight Gian Villante (above, left) and UFC middleweight Chris Weidman.

Both are from Long Island. Both are former All-Americans at Hofstra. Both won titles at Ring of Combat. Both have fights coming up in June. Both are rising prospects in their respective weight divisions.

Snap a pic with them and send it to them on Twitter at @GPVillante and @chrisweidmanufc and they'll likely post your photo
