TIMES SQUARE TO HOST UNPRECEDENTED PUBLIC VIEWING OF ANTICIPATED UFC FIGHT IN RIO DE JANEIRO

Free live viewing to spur celebration, community in Little Brazil
UFC 134’s bouts will be screened for thousands in Times Square’s Little Brazil – reflective of the fight’s base in Rio de Janeiro and the Brazilian birthplace of mixed martial arts. Spike TV’s preliminary fights will broadcast on the digital sign above The Doubletree Hotel on the East side of Duffy Square’s red steps, 47th Street & 7th Ave Saturday, August 27 from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m EST. Never before has UFC offered a viewing of this magnitude.  

After celebrating in the streets of Times Square, fans and interested viewers are encouraged to finish watching the fight at neighboring bars in Little Brazil such as Bowlmor Times Square (W 44th between 7th and 8th Aves.).

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is the world’s leading professional mixed martial arts organization and offers the premier series of MMA sports events.
