MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Buffalo Wild Wings®, Inc. (NASDAQ: BWLD) unveiled a
new takeout offer for UFC® fans around the country. Beginning on
May 13, and available during the weekends of UFC 198, 199 and 200, fans
can order a UFC Takeout Pack, which includes 60 boneless or
traditional wings and chips and salsa, with the option to upgrade to
Chili Queso dip. Fans can host their own UFC fight night watch parties,
while still enjoying their favorite B-Dubs wings by ordering the UFC

“We’re excited to offer our guests with more ways to enjoy their

To get fans excited for the UFC Takeout Pack offer, Buffalo Wild
Wings released a new hidden camera video today entitled “Takeout
Fakeout.” The video features an unsuspecting UFC fan arriving at a local
Buffalo Wild Wings in Las Vegas to pick up a takeout order ahead of UFC
197. Fortunately for the fan, when he arrives to pick up his takeout, he
was greeted by UFC Hall of Famer Forrest Griffin and current UFC
middleweight champion Luke Rockhold to view some of the UFC 197
preliminary fights. After watching a few fights and enjoying their
favorite wings, the fan and his friends were whisked away to the MGM
Grand Garden Arena where they met UFC President Dana White and watched
UFC 197 up close and in person. To view “Takeout Fakeout,” click here.
