Fighting talk as UFC Owner flies in for Leaders

UFC-WallpaperLorenzo Fertitta, Owner and Chairman, UFC and Garry Cook, Managing Director EMEA, are the next world class speakers to join the 6th annual Leaders Sport Summit at Stamford Bridge on October 9th and 10th 2013.

Here we get the inside story on the world’s leading mixed martial arts organisation, which now hosts the top-ranked fighters across the globe and how the UFC brand has steadfastly become one of the most powerful across sport.

When Lorenzo Fertitta first bought the Ultimate Fighting Championship in 2001 for $2 million, he had one long-term goal – to build a sport. Fast forward to 2013, and the UFC is broadcast in 149 countries, to nearly 1 billion homes worldwide, in 30 different languages, and is the largest pay-per-view event provider in the world with a long-term mainstream US television contract with Fox Sports.

Fertitta and Cook join a world-class line-up of top speakers already confirmed, including Sir Martin Sorrell, CEO, WPP Group, Andrea Agnelli, President, Juventus FC; Peter Moore, COO, Electronic Arts; Hugh Roberton, Minister for Sport and Tourism, UK Government; Dan Cobley, Managing Director (UK and Ireland), Google; Unal Aysal, President, Galatasaray S.K.; Didac Lee, Director of Technology and Board Member, FC Barcelona; Luis Alvaro, President, Santos FC; Florian Zitzlsperger, Head of Brand Partnerships and Sports Marketing, Audi; Brett Yormark, CEO, Brooklyn Nets and many more.

With the conference having sold out every year, places are very limited and will only go to individuals and organisations with a keen interest or track record in this area.
