RENO —  Harrah’s Reno, and the Ultimate Armwrestling League, proudly present the 2012 USAF Unified National Armwrestling Championships on Saturday. This distinctive one-of-a-kind sporting event will treat fans to a high-energy night filled with music, gorgeous go-go girls and knock-down, drag-out, arm wrestling mayhem. The Saturday main event will feature finals in each weight class competing for a chance to represent the United States at the world competition in Brazil later this year. On this special night, legends of the sport will reunite for a classic showdown.  The prize on the line for the winner is an extravagant $8,000 gold ring as well as hefty bragging rights as the ultimate arm wrestler in the nation.  This is the first time such a contest has accompanied the national finals.
