LAS VEGAS, Nevada — LFA President Sven Bean announced today that the LFA has entered into two event production agreements in April of 2023.
“The LFA team will return to our two most frequented markets to produce back-to-back events in April,” said Bean, who handles venue booking and scheduling for the LFA.
“We will kick things off by heading back to the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota on Friday April 14th” stated Bean.
“As a company we have produced 20 events inside the Sanford Pentagon. The venue is really fan friendly, and a great place to bring a group to watch live fights. There is not a bad seat in the house, from the Suites, to the VIP Tables, even in the bleacher seats. All the while the venue has that high level sports arena quality. I am looking forward to twenty-first show in the venue, and another successful event on April 14th,” stated Bean.
Sanford Sports Complex Director Brock Reynoldson echoed that sentiment:
“The Pentagon team always looks forward to the LFA returning to the Sioux Falls market. The local fan base has come to expect high level production along with exciting MMA bouts. With a longstanding history, the LFA and Sanford teams work really well together. We expect another great night for the fans on April 14th.
Tickets for LFA 156 will be available for purchase beginning at 10 a.m. on February 14 at Ticketmaster.com and the Sanford Pentagon Box Office. Ticket options start at $25. For information on purchasing suites and ringside tables, call 605-312-7900.
Blue Rock Bar and Grill will also host a LFA 156 pre-fight party with food and drink specials.
LFA 156 will be broadcast live at 6PM PST/9PM EST on UFC FIGHT PASS.
“The following week, the LFA heads to Minnesota for a return to the Mystic Lake Casino Hotel. This will mark the second of three scheduled events at the venue for 2023. The entertainment team is top-notch, and always help the LFA to put the best product out there for our fans. It is without a doubt, one of my favorite venues to work with. We are coming off our biggest event in the history of shows at Mystic, so the bar has been raised pretty high. I’m excited for another great night on April 21st” continued Bean.
Sterling Entertainment Group President, Jeremy Bjornberg added:
“I’m really looking forward to another LFA event in the Mystic Lake showroom this spring. The LFA event in January was the biggest show ever, and I’m hoping for a repeat. I’m happy to be working with the LFA and Mystic teams on two more great events for the 2023 season.”
