Prepare with Special Operations and UFC Superstars. Battle the Apocalypse. Save the World.
LAS VEGAS, June 17, 2015 – Adventure Combat Ops (ACO) has announced a partnership with UFC® to allow fight fans the exciting opportunity to experience thrilling Adventure Combat Ops alongside fighters during the 4th Annual UFC International Fight Week™, which takes place in Las Vegas from July 7-12.
“Pairing our Special Operations Forces (SOF) Operatives from ACO with the UFC is the perfect match for combat and fight fans who thrive on extreme activities, which provide unique levels of adrenaline rush,” Adventure Combat Ops Founder and Chief Executive Officer Travis Krauss said. “We look forward to sharing our adventure, inside and outside the Octagon®, with UFC and the opportunity to share the most realistic combat simulation with UFC fans.”
UFC International Fight Week features a UFC Fan Expo®, the 2015 UFC Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, a UFC Reebok experience, the Ulti-man 5k, UFC Gym® Fitness Challenge and various martial arts tournaments, as well as fan events at Fremont Street Experience. UFC International Fight Week will be capped off with two highly anticipated events in UFC® 189: ALDO vs. MCGREGOR on Saturday, July 11 and The Ultimate Fighter® Finale on Sunday, July 12.
The Fan Expo features an ACO VIP area, where fans can enter the ACO apocalypse while touring a UFC branded signature ACO ‘ZAP’ truck with special ops and their favorite UFC fighters. During International Fight Week, partners give back to the community during UFC’s silent charity auction, with ACO donating a two-person Operator Package experience with four UFC fighters.
Adventure Combat Ops will bring the most realistic, apocalyptic, combat simulation in the world to Las Vegas. Civilians, UFC fans and fighters can now participate in a two-hour experience based on special operations missions made wildly popular in first-person video games and major motion pictures. ACO guests will be prepared and led by members of elite special operations forces including Delta Force Operators, Navy SEALs Green Beret/Special Forces, and Army Rangers who collectively have decades of combat and mission experience around the world. Outfitted with tactical gear and non-lethal weapons, guests will then undertake a mission into a post-apocalyptic world within ACO’s 70,000 square-foot facility. The 2-hour adrenaline rush will await those brave enough to complete mission tasks and test their new skills battling zombies while saving the world alongside real American heroes. No prior military, UFC fight skills or tactical experience is necessary to participate.
Packages start at $199 and include the full immersive experience with an ACO Operative Team Leader and kit issue (Masada non-lethal assault rifle, jump fast helmet, equipment vest, ammo, goggles, and a two-way, multichannel radio with headset). UFC International Fight Week attendees will also receive a 10% discount on all Adventure Combat Ops experiences and memorabilia.
