What about other venues?
If you're looking to produce a show, don't do it. You'll need $50k minimum onwards up to quarter million. I'm a consultant. I've done more research on this that most. Your venue isn't the main concern it's the fighters' purse, insurance, unionized staffing, security, and I can go on.

If you want a consultant I'll be happy to do it for a small fee, but I guarantee most promoters will lose money on their first show if not the second or third. Oh yah you need to get a cage too. Production was $30k alone and that was for lighting + sound. Factor in every other expense you probably won't think of and before you know it you'll be in over your head.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
