UFC to Pay Respect to the Troops

The Ultimate Fighting Championships has announced that Ultimate Fight Night 7 will take place at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego, CA, and is the first ever live UFC event on a military base.

The crowd will consist solely of three thousand United States Marines stationed at Miramar, except for five (5) pairs of seats which are being auctioned off.

“We are holding this fight at Miramar as our way of saluting the brave men and women of the United States Military fighting oversees in the name of freedom,” said UFC President Dana White and Spike TV General Manager Kevin Kay, in a joint statement.

All the proceeds earned in the auction will be benefit the Marine Corps Community Services Quality of Life Programs for the Marines and Families, which support the health and well-being of active duty service members and their families throughout the year.
