- UFC has new facility in Las Vegas
- Don Riddell goes behind the scenes
The Ultimate Fighting Championship is one of the world's most lucrative sport franchise, valued last year
at $4 billion. And now, it has the facilities to prove it.
CNN's Don Riddell was in Las Vegas to be given a guided tour of the new 15-acre complex by White and former fighter Forrest Griffin.
It's designed to unite the sport -- both its athletes and administrative staff -- under one roof, and is complete with pristine lawns, a restaurant, gym, steam room, and sauna.
MMA has enjoyed a rapid rise in recent years, thanks largely to UFC and its global stars. The likes of Conor McGregor
, Ronda Rousey
, and Amanda Nunes
have become the sport's defining athletes.
