Here's a snip from UFC President Dana White:
"We are pleased to be working with the Maloofs to bring the most exciting live combat sport in the world – the UFC – to The Palms in Las Vegas. I am very excited about this partnership, the property fits perfectly with the UFC demographic, and I look forward to holding a series of UFC events inside the state-of-the-art venue The Pearl."
