UFC Fight Night Moscow Set For September

UFC Fight Night Moscow Set For September”

Popularity for the sport in Russian Federation has grown immensely in recent years.

After years of plotting a move into Russian Federation, the UFC has officially announced a card set to take place at the Olimpiyskiy Arena in Moscow on September 15. Traditionally the UFC tends to hold back its bigger stars to compete on pay-per-view, a move which likely means that lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov will not compete.

"Russia is a key part of UFC's worldwide expansion strategy", said David Shaw, Senior Vice President, UFC global and Content, per a UFC press release. The UFC fans in Russian Federation will be able to purchase tickets for this event, which will be held on September 15, from 1 June this year.

The long March to Moscow is almost over for the UFC. The event happens at the Olimpiyskiy Arena with tickets going on sale on June 1.

MMA Fighting reports that UFC has officially announced a UFC Fight Night event for Moscow on September 15. Gromkovski brings with him expertise across the media sales, digital, marketing and content distribution landscapes, working with companies such as Universal Studios, FOX, Viacom and Paramount Pictures. His primary duties will include implementing a national strategy to grow the sport further, working with executive teams in Las Vegas and the EMEA in London, England.

The UFC will be testing the waters with this Fight Night event though and have plenty of talent to stock the card up with. He is now the Editor-in-Chief of Campus Sports.
