UFC goes to the movies in Australia and New Zealand

Mixed martial arts promotion the Ultimate Fighting Championship has agreed a long-term partnership with Village Cinemas and Event Cinemas, which will showcase the UFC’s largest events in 63 theatre locations across Australia and New Zealand.

The agreement will launch with UFC 205, which is taking place on November 13 in Madison Square Garden, New York. The event is headlined by Eddie Alvarez making his first lightweight title defence against featherweight champion Conor McGregor.

The partnership will extend beyond UFC 205 to offer future UFC events in Village Cinemas and Event Cinemas throughout the two countries.
