Zuffa rings bell at NASDAQ

May 5, 2012

In promotion of the UFC’s third appearance on Fox, Zuffa fighters rang the NASDAQ bell earlier this week in New York’s Times Square. Jon Jones, Frankie Edgar and Strikeforce’s Ronda Rousey were on hand as well as UFC on Fox anchor Curt Menefee.

Payout Perspective:

This has been the only real mainstream promotion for today’s card (if I’m missing something, please let me know in the comments) on the network. And, it wasn’t even the New York Stock Exchange. Nevertheless, a good photo op and another subtle hint that New York should have MMA. It’s interesting that Rousey is getting a push from Zuffa as she recently was on TUF Live and testified against against AB 2100 in California.
