The UFC has been fast-rising in popularity. In recent times, several places such as the Palace of Auburn Hills, American airline center, Rogers Centre, the TD Garden, and many others have played host to important UFC events.
With UFC signing contracts with significant sporting stakeholders, more and more of the games will be hosted across the world. But what are the most popular UFC venues that can play host to the upcoming events?
Madison Square Garden
Madison Square Garden has been christened as the world’s most famous arena. The New York square can host up to 22,292 spectators. Any future UFC event hosted by the stadium will see fans fill up the arena. One fighter from New York who will make fans fill the venue faster is the iconic Jon Bones Jones.
Built-in 1922, the stadium previously boasted of a record 16,000 people attending the UFC 82 and 17000 attending UFC 96. These numbers have since been surpassed. Any future event featuring any of Ohio fighters such as Rich Franklin, Matt Brown, or Mac Danzig will undoubtedly pull a bigger crowd.
The 54,000-capacity stadium is one of the most fantastic venues in the world to watch a UFC clash. Some of the New York fighters who usually help pull big crowds to fill up the venue includes Amir Sadolláh, Matt Serra and Chris Weidman.
The Rose Bowl
Rose Bowl has a maximum seating capacity of 106,869. The venue is famous for its warm California temperatures, which are experienced throughout the year. The Rose Bowl will be an ideal venue for any of the ever-growing UFC events.
The stadium has hosted UFC 123 in the past that pulled an excited crowd of 16,404. With a capacity of 109 000 seats, any major UFC event scheduled for this stadium in the future will undoubtedly attract half the stadium’s capacity.
