Verizon Center

Verizon Center in Washington, DC

UFC on Versus 6, slated for Oct. 1 in Washington, D.C, will take place at the Verizon Center, according to MMAWeekly.com sources.

The Verizon Center is the home of the NBA’s Washington Wizards and the NHL’s Washington Capitals. It has a capacity of just under 21,000 for basketball games, although it’s not yet clear what the set-up will be at the arena for the UFC’s first event in the United States’ capital city.

The Verizon Center is aptly nicknamed “The Phone Booth” because of its association with the telecomm industry. Prior to being named the Verizon Center it was the MCI Center.

The event was just recently announced, but the UFC on Versus 6 fight card is already coming together with bouts that include Mac Danzig vs. Matt Wiman, Charlie Brenneman vs. Anthony Johnson, and Paul Sass vs. Michael Johnson.
