The UFC, Ultimate Fighting Championship, is one of the hottest entertainment events currently and Las Vegas being the home of most live fights, also hosts some of the hottest viewing parties. Bars that host the live events via Pay-Per-View are some of the busiest venues in Las Vegas.
When a live UFC Fight happens in Las Vegas, tickets are in such a high demand that a lot of people are priced out. Not being able to come up with the sometimes multi-thousand dollar ticket price, does not deter tens of thousands of Las Vegans that insist on the party that usually accompanies such an event. The UFC, which is owned by the Fertitta’s, which also own Station Casinos, and have large viewing parties in their casinos’ ballrooms, are not quite the same type of party that happens at the various bars around the valley.
Various Sports Bars around the Las Vegas metro area usually offer the fights in multiple locations and do not typically charge anything to see it. In addition, the venues normally have outrageous drink and food specials, while giving away prizes to go along with it. While the locations are not always the same from fight to fight, most of them can be relied on to be a regular viewing spot due to the extreme business that they bring in. Some of the regular viewing locations are:
1. Buffalo Wild Wings – 65 E. Horizon Ridge Pkwy, Henderson – 702-564-5795
2. Buffalo Wild Wings – 7345 S Durango Dr. Las Vegas – 702-260-4800
3. Buffalo Wild Wings – 7430 Las Vegas Blvd. S. Las Vegas – 702-614-0238
4. Miller’s Ale House – 6683 Las Vegas Blvd. S Las Vegas – 702-616-3414
5. Hooters – 7155 S Rainbow Blvd Las Vegas – 702-260-9464

7. Cabo Wabo Cantina (Planet Hollywood) – 3663 S Las Vegas Blvd S. – 702-385-2226
Not all locations have viewing parties for every fight and there are a lot more venues that show events on random dates, so contact specific venues for information on specific events. A new local Las Vegas website http://www.LasVegasUFCBars.com will have a complete and continuously updating listing of Las Vegas Bars that offer the events for free.
