Adding yet another way to reach out to fans the Ultimate Fighting Championship announced today the launch of the UFC Octagon Nation Tour, a multi-stop, nationwide tour happening throughout the summer.
The tour will be coming to a city near you in a fully customized 18-wheeler, along with two Octagon-sized tents containing the ultimate UFC fan experience. The UFC Octagon Nation Tour will be present at this summer’s top events, including the Bonnaroo Music Festival, Summer X Games and the Quicksilver Pro.
“I’ve always said that the UFC live experience is the best in all of sports,” UFC President Dana White said. “With the Octagon Nation Tour, we are going to bring the fastest-growing sport in the world to some of the best events of the summer. We’re excited to hit the road and give fans the opportunity to check it out.”
The Tour will feature physical fitness tests for fans (weigh-in, high jump, pull-up bar and a punch strength station) along with an exhibition truck dedicated to showcasing rare UFC memorabilia such as Royce Gracie’s autographed Gi and Georges St-Pierre’s fight shorts.
