UFC Working On Event At Yankee Stadium In New York, Lorenzo Fertitta Comments


UFC has big plans for the next few years now that MMA is officially legal in the state of New York.

In addition to the previously announced UFC 205 event at Madison Square Garden in New York City in November, UFC is also looking at running events in Albany, Syracuse and Rochester.

But that’s not all.

According to UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta, there is already plans in the works for a potential UFC event at Yankee Stadium.

“There’s a bunch of other venues we want to go to,” Fertitta told Newsday. “We want to go to Barclays, we’ve had discussions with Yankee Stadium to do something next summer there.”

The Newsday article goes on to confirm that while no official negotiations have taken place yet between Yankee Stadium officials and the UFC, the two sides do plan to sit down together in the near future.
