Its about time that someone does this. Anyone that lives in Vegas knows that driving out to UNLV's current football stadium is a pain in the bunz. This should significantly increase their crowd size and improve the team a great deal in the near future.
On top of that an estimated 394 million in annual revenue will help the city a ton and create quite a few new jobs.
I have to disagree with the ts about it being the first American stadium to hold a UFC event though. This isn't going to be ready until 2016...I expect there to be an event at Cowboy Stadium within the next year or two. We will see
If all goes according to plan, UNLV and its developer partners hope to break ground in the next two years. The stadium could be completed by 2017.
