It’s emerged that the UFC are considering buying the naming rights to the new arena currently being built in Las Vegas.

According to a report from CBS, it’s possible the 20,000 seater, $375 million building could be named the ‘UFC Center’ if the MMA promotion is able to strike what’s expected to a be a multi-million dollar deal with it’s owners, AEG and MGM.

UFC are already believed to be holding the first ever event at the arena, with plans in the works to host the blockbuster UFC 200 event there in July of 2016.

According to MMA journalist Jeremy Botter the UFC have also been in talks about the possibility of having their Hall Of Fame added somewhere within the arena.

Sporting events will be a big part of the new venue, with talks even believed to have taken place about having a National Hockey League team use it as their new home, while it’s also expected to be a major destination for concerts too.

Naming rights to such a high-profile venue would give the UFC brand massive exposure, but the company is believed to still be weighing up whether it’s going to be worth doing financially.
