What to do in Vegas between UFC fights

Whilst the UFC show is the highlight of many people’s trip to Vegas, there are other things to do in between fights.

Las Vegas is the spiritual home of the UFC, the world’s most successful Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) promotion headed by its remarkable president, Dana White. Although now expanding globally, the UFC still hosts huge shows in Sin City at its Apex venue.  Tickets usually sell out fast, with a priority booking system for those with membership to the Ultimate and Elite levels of UFC Fight Club. The Apex Venue also has a broadcast centre, with viewer numbers surpassing one million for title challenges, particularly popular amongst the 18-49 demographic. Whilst the UFC show is the highlight of many people’s trip to Vegas, there are other things to do in between fights.
