Thought this was worth a special mention.
UFC taking it to China bigtime. Makes sense. A country and culture traditionally positive to martial arts gets access to the best martial arts promotion in the world.
A billion potential fans.
Awesome.

UFC Announces Major Expansion In China

UFC Performance Institute to open in Shanghai in 2019.


SHANGHAI and LAS VEGAS – UFC®, Nov. 20, 2018

The world’s premier Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) organization, today announced plans to open the world’s largest, state-of-the-art MMA training and development facility in Shanghai, China in 2019. This announcement comes as UFC brings its first-ever event to Beijing this week.


UFC Performance Institute Shanghai will serve as a training hub to develop and support MMA athletes from mainland China and the greater Asia-Pacific region. UFC will also utilize the building as its headquarters in Asia, housing UFC employees and UFC Performance Institute staff, including experts in the fields of MMA, strength and conditioning, sports science, physical therapy and nutrition.

UFC Performance Institute Shanghai will also have built-in advanced production capabilities with spectator seating that will allow UFC to produce and distribute live events and other original programming.

Additional features will include hospitality suites, dining, retail services, and a fan experience area. When completed, the multi-million-dollar facility will span more than 93,000 square feet, approximately three times the size of the original UFC Performance Institute in Las Vegas.



Two floors will consist of:

The Performance Floor

Hypoxic Lab
Cryotherapy chamber
Underwater treadmill
Hot & cold plunges
Physical therapy clinic
Fueling station
DEXA Scan & metabolic cart
Relaxation and cognitive performance lounges
Sauna & steam rooms
Floatation tank
Olympic lifting platforms with force plates • Full cardio suite
Indoor turf area & impact wall
Locker rooms


The Mixed Martial Arts Floor

Camera analysis and motion capture technology
Two 25’ regulation Octagons
Regulation boxing ring
4,000 sq. ft. mat area
Bag area
Cardio suite


“I could not be more excited about the UFC Performance Institute opening in Shanghai,” said UFC President Dana White. “We know there is a ton of talent throughout Asia and now we will be able to find them and offer them all the incredible training, nutrition, and physical therapy that UFC fighters are getting in the Performance Institute at our headquarters in Las Vegas, right there in China. This is another game changer for the sport, UFC, and potential athletes throughout Asia.”

UFC Performance Institute Shanghai will serve as a catalyst for athlete development in Asia, aiming to rapidly accelerate the skill level and UFC-readiness of mixed martial artists in the region. A full MMA coaching staff will implement a sport-specific training system developed in consultation with former UFC light heavyweight champion, UFC Hall of Famer, and current UFC Vice President of Athlete Development, Forrest Griffin. This integrated, inter-disciplinary combat sports performance team will offer an unparalleled level of support to athletes.



UFC opened the first UFC Performance Institute in Las Vegas in 2017 as the world’s first Mixed Martial Arts multi-disciplinary research, innovation, and training center. Through the first 17 months of operation, over 400 athletes on the UFC roster have utilized the facility and the services provided remotely. In addition, several dozen NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB and Olympic sports athletes have visited the facility for support during their off-season training. In June 2018, the UFC Performance Institute unveiled the first-ever comprehensive study of the sport of MMA entitled “A Cross-Sectional Performance Analysis and Projection of the UFC Athlete.” The findings examined more than 30,000 performance metrics and data points to reveal the best approach to train and prepare for MMA competition.

Additional details regarding UFC Performance Institute Shanghai will be announced in coming months.
