Dana White Says UFC Will Hold First Event in New Las Vegas Arena
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.01.2014

Dana White says that the UFC has the first date inside the $375 million Las Vegas Arena when it opens in 2016. White told MMAjunkie that MGM has promised him the first sporting event in the venue when it opens, despite Golden Boy Promotions wanting to use a boxing match featuring Floyd Mayweather as the first.

White said, "MGM already promised me the first date. I don't care what Schaefer says."

White added that this will allow the company to look at doing Las Vegas more often since it will have a modern facility in place, although they will continue to consider the MGM Grand Garden Arena and Mandalay Bay Events Center for events. He said, "It will definitely open more dates for us. Plus, the one thing this town needed really bad was a state-of-the-art arena. … Whether it's the Internet service or the production, all of these things are very important in putting on a world-class show, and it's all going to change when this thing is built. It's a game-changer for everybody – for the fans, for the people that are putting on the shows, and obviously for the city."
