T-Mobile Arena has entered into an extended multi-year agreement with UFC that names the organization as an anchor tenant of the arena.
The partnership, which also establishes T-Mobile Arena as UFC’s exclusive Las Vegas arena destination, marks the first time that a global sports brand, other than a professional sports franchise, has been named as an Anchor Tenant for a sports and entertainment venue.

T-Mobile Arena has already hosted three of UFC’s most successful events including UFC 200: TATE vs. NUNES, UFC 202: DIAZ vs. MCGREGOR 2 and UFC 207: NUNES vs. ROUSEY.
The comprehensive agreement calls for UFC to host a minimum of four events annually. UFC will have priority scheduling for designated major events windows, such as International Fight Week, and will have a presence at T-Mobile Arena – headlining the welcome sign in the lobby alongside the Vegas Golden Knights, as well as concourse activations, signage and retail space.
UFC joins the new Vegas Golden Knights NHL expansion team, set to begin play this fall, as the arena’s two anchor tenants.
