UFC purchases 24 acres for $7.8 million in Vegas to build new headquarters

 

The Zuffa has conducted business in the same location since purchasing the Ultimate Fighting Championship from SEG in 2001. Over time the business has grown and is now at a point where it needs more space to conduct business:

To accommodate its continued growth and put its nearly 300 Las Vegas employees under one roof, the company confirmed to FOX5 Wednesday that it has purchased 24 acres of land near I-215 and Jones Blvd. at the cost of $7.8 million.

"What attracted us to the area is the great access to the airport and the venues where we host our Las Vegas based events, as well as the growing number of entrepreneurial businesses developing in the area," said UFC CFO John Mulkey in a statement to FOX5.

"I think it's pretty exciting actually anytime you've got a huge organization that's got the name recognition that they have," said Michael Spears, who owns nearby Collision Authority.

Holy crap Sinjin. That is actually pretty damn clever. Well done, and VTFU!   So that's a lot of land. Are they going to build their own stadium/parking so they can host events without having to pay another venue or what? Because 24 acres is a little excessive for just a headquarters, unless it is going to have a private runway for the company jets.
