The Ultimate Fighting Championship May Hold An Event At The Las Vegas Motor Speedway

It was revealed today that the UFC are looking into possibly doing an event at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in their home town of Las Vegas, Nevada during this year, with the ability to pack upwards of 132,000 fans into the venue we would likely witness one of the very hard to put together “super fights”.

Via The Las Vegas Review Journal:

(Las Vegas Motor) Speedway President Chris Powell said he approached UFC President Dana White and UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta about that possibility Friday at the Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame at Orleans Arena.

“I like it,” (Dana White) said. “It would be cool as hell, and we have a few fights coming up that could pull it off.”

White’s main concern with an outdoor event is rain: “We could work with wind. September would be great.”

Powell said his initial vision would be to erect a temporary bowl in the infield to offer a more intimate view in the 132,000-seat venue.
