ULTIMATE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP® AND UFC® FAN EXPO™ SCHEDULED TO TAKE OVER BOSTON THIS AUGUST 27 & 28

(LAS VEGAS, NV --- May 20, 2010) – With the highly anticipated return of UFC® Fan Expo™ taking place in conjunction with UFC 114 Rampage vs. Rashad this Memorial Day weekend, the Ultimate Fighting Championship®, in partnership with Reed Exhibitions, today announces its third UFC Fan Expo set to take place at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts on Friday, August 27 and Saturday, August 28, 2010. 

I think everyone knows how much it means to me to bring the UFC to Boston and to give fans this two-day event packed with amazing UFC experiences,” said UFC President Dana White.

This past December, Massachusetts became the 42nd state to sanction the sport of mixed martial arts. With this long awaited legislation, White has promised to bring an incredible UFC event to Boston along with The Ultimate Fan Experience - a chance for all fans on the east coast and beyond to attend the first-ever UFC Fan Expo in Boston and celebrate their passion for MMA.

As the world’s premier MMA event, the UFC Fan Expo provides millions of fans the opportunity to experience, celebrate, learn and rub shoulders with some of the most exciting athletes in sports today. Fans will take advantage of all the UFC has to offer through a jam-packed weekend of events including exhibitions, training & development sessions with elite fighters and iconic MMA coaches, fan-inspired special events and competitions, meet & greets with top fighters and demos of various fighting techniques.

Exhibitors at the event will now reach a new demographic of fans living on the East Coast. The third UFC Fan Expo is expected to attract over 150 leading vendors covering roughly 200,000 gross square feet of space. The packed exhibit floor will feature apparel, electronic gaming, food & beverages, fight gear, fitness equipment and supplies, nutritional supplements, lifestyle products and much more.

Building off the successes of the first two Las Vegas UFC Fan Expos and paired with a highly anticipated fight card scheduled to take place this August, the UFC Fan Expo Boston 2010 will bring an exciting and unique opportunity to the region.
