Monorail Named ‘Official Las Vegas Transportation of UFC’

LAS VEGAS – The Las Vegas Monorail today announced a partnership with UFC® to provide fight fans discounted fares as they ride trains to attend upcoming UFC events. Fight fans will have the exciting opportunity to ride two UFC signature wrapped trains that are currently promoting the 4th Annual UFC International Fight Week™, which takes place from July 7-12. Discounted fares and custom designed tickets will debut in conjunction with the Monorail’s two signature trains, which have already begun running along the famous Las Vegas Strip.

“The Las Vegas Monorail Company is very excited to partner with UFC. Our two organizations are intimately tied to Las Vegas and what our community offers and this partnership just makes sense. UFC will continue to deliver exciting events at outstanding venues throughout the city, while the Las Vegas Monorail physically delivers fight fans to the heart of the city on UFC-branded trains,” said Ingrid Reisman, VP and Chief Marketing Officer for the Las Vegas Monorail. “Our seven stations connect the Las Vegas Strip and everything it has to offer including world-class sporting events. We are thrilled to be in such elite company with UFC as their official Las Vegas transportation choice.”

This partnership is for one year and designates the Las Vegas Monorail as ‘The Official Las Vegas Transportation of UFC.’

UFC International Fight Week features a UFC Fan Expo®, the 2015 UFC Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, a UFC Reebok experience, the Ulti-man 5k, UFC Gym® Fitness Challenge, the Fremont Street Experience Concert and various martial arts tournaments. UFC International Fight Week will be capped off with two highly anticipated events in UFC® 189: ALDO vs. MCGREGOR on Saturday, July 11 and The Ultimate Fighter® Finale on Sunday, July 12.

Las Vegas Arena is coming soon

The Las Vegas Arena, a joint venture between AEG and MGM Resorts, will be a state of the art 20,000 seat sports and entertainment area.  This $350 million project broke ground in May 2014 and is expected to be completed in the Spring of 2016.   The arena will feature top billing music artists, boxing, UFC fights, and other large scale events.


As you can see by the renderings this is not an ordinary area.  The modern design is not only aesthetically stunning, it is also designed to meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s standards for LEED® Gold Certification.  The arena will also feature 50 luxury suites, more than two dozen private boxes and other specially designed exclusive hospitality offerings never before featured in a facility of its kind.


If you are interested in checking out the progress of the construction, click here to view pictures that are updated several times per day and a very cool time-lapse video.

The Las Vegas Area will be easily accessible via a short walk across the street from the Las Vegas Monorail’s MGM Grand station.  With trains arriving every 5-7 minutes, the Monorail is the best choice for transportation on the Las Vegas Strip.  Check out out how you can save on multi-day Monorail passes on your next visit.
