UFC has officially requested that they want an event at Energy Solutions Arena.

I just read this and i am excited about this because as we all know Utah is a very conservative state. This is what i call progress for the UFC and MMA nationwide. I am very close to Utah and can take a short Southwest Airlines flight to Salt Lake City and watch it live. They did not mention any of the fights but they said it would be held in August. One interesting side note. It said it would be shown on versus 2. I personally do not know much about the cable business so maybe somebody can explain this to me. Is versus breaking up into two different sports. They show Mountain West Conference and Big 12 college football and bullriding. Maybe one of the versus will just show MMA? I'm just excited that they we be going to Utah and i can watch another live UFC event in another state. Plus i have seen the Utah Jazz play at that arena and the acoustics are very good for basketball. I hope they would be as good for MMA. The arena holds almost 20,000 people for basketball so the cage set up would not be as big as the basketball setup so i would expect a full house of 20,250 fans of MMA to be there. I can't wait.
