UFC 217 was one of the greatest fight nights to go down in the history of the UFC and we were lucky enough to be in the middle of all the action. As VIPs, our entire weekend was filled with fighters, exclusive extras, and the best views of everything. Here’s a closer look at what went down with our VIPs.
UFC 217 Weigh-in
The weigh-in was so much fun. We had the best seats in the house right behind the fighters and media. The general public scrambled to get in line hours before doors opened to get their seats while our VIPs strolled in via the fast access line to their reserved floor seats. It was awesome to see famous UFC personalities walk by to their seats along with Chris Wiedman and Tyron Woodley setting up for the FS1 broadcast. While the camera crews and UFC were doing their final sound checks and walkthroughs, our Owners and VIP package guests were escorted backstage to meet fighters. They were in for an amazing treat as the main card fighters walked right past us to their spots. Michael Bisping and Georges St-Pierre both walked by with their camps and high fived several guests. Cynthia Cavillo, Joseph Benavidez, Francis Ngannou, and TJ Dillashaw took some time to hang with our guests backstage as well. It was an epic moment for our VIPs just before the weigh-ins went down.
UFC 217 – And New!
To say the fight card was shocking is an understatement. This was an indescribable night for any UFC fan and it was completely elevated with our UFC VIP Experience. Our guests had the night of their lives with us. We started the night with an Octagon experience. We shed our shoes and hopped into the Octagon for a few rounds– just kidding, we only snapped some photos but boy, these photos were super fun! While we played around in the Octagon, the camera crew used our guests as test subjects for lighting, sound, and camera checks. We spent some time watching the magic behind the telecast come to life. Once the sound check was complete, we headed into our amazing hospitality space in the Delta Sky360° Club.
The prefight party was phenomenal! When we arrived, we were greeted by Aljamain Sterling and a stocked bar. Once the doors opened, guests were able to wander the stadium between their seats and the party. Guests spent time posing with friends and the Women’s Strawweight belt in our photo-booth. The food was fabulous, but the company really made the experience! Paige VanZant, Michael Johnson, Robert Whittaker, Demitrious Johnson, Joseph Benavidez, Megan Olivi, Forrest Griffin, Cynthia Cavill, Gian Villante, Al Iquinta, Michael Chiesa, Francis Ngannou, Ryan LaFlare, Katlyn Chookagian, and the Octagon Girls all attended our prefight party! Each fighter mingled with our guests, posed for photos, and enjoyed our buffet of delicious food during the prelim fights. Our cake pops seemed to be a real hit with the fighters and guests!
Once the main card started, guest dispersed around the arena to their floor seats or riser seats. Every view was exceptional, and the card did not disappoint! We had the opportunity to be on fighter walkout. As each main card fighter walked past us to get in the Octagon, you couldn’t help but smile from ear to ear with excitement.
