LAS VEGAS, Nevada — LFA President Sven Bean announced today that the LFA has entered into a single production agreement for December of 2023.
“I’m excited to announce that in December, the LFA team will finally head to the fight capital of the world, Las Vegas,” said Bean, who handles venue booking and scheduling for the LFA.
“We will close out an amazing year with a grand finale event at the iconic Palms Casino Resort, on Friday, December 15th,” stated Bean.
“The ‘Pearl at the Palms’ has such a great history in MMA. It provided an intimate setting for numerous UFC fight nights and The Ultimate Fighter Finale events. The Pearl’s unique design and atmosphere has made it a favorite destination for fight fans. It’s also been home to countless top music and comedic acts. I couldn’t be more excited to work with their experienced team, and display what the LFA can do in that legendary room. The UFC is the next night, so the town will be full of MMA fans. We’re ready to show them what an LFA event is all about. I have to also extend my gratitude to Patrick Ortiz of Ringside Ticket INC for his assistance on this exciting project” stated Bean.
Crystal Robinson-Wesley, VP of Entertainment and Activations at Palms, added:
“We are thrilled to bring this exciting LFA event to Pearl Theater inside Palms Casino Resort. With our storied history of hosting epic showdowns, we anticipate this one will be nothing short of spectacular. We’re especially excited to share with MMA fans that there isn’t a bad seat in the house, so get ready for an unforgettable night of adrenaline-pumping action!”
