fightPreparing for UFC Fight Night
UK - The O2 Arena in London witnessed its largest audience at a single sporting event in history when hosting the UFC Fight Night on 19 March.
TSL were back at the O2 to put together an impressive rig with lighting over centre stage. The main component of the lighting system - Tungsten 6 Lamp Bars of Source 4 Pars evenly lit up the Octagon suitably.
It had been three years since UFC had returned to the O2 and as with any event it was imperative that everything ran like clockwork. Dom Sheerman, account director for TSL says, “Having been a regular event in the calendar it was great to be delivering a UFC show again, the last show previous to this was at the end of 2019 in Moscow so it’s been a long break.”
TSL assembled its established core team of technicians that have worked on UFC events multiple times to deliver lighting designer Jason Eible’s distinctive lighting design.
The lighting rig was a mixture of tungsten and LED fixtures controlled via Avolites Sapphire consoles.
There were a number of fixtures covering effects and eye candy for the camera. These included our SGM Q7s, Martin MAC Auras, Martin Mac Viper Performances, Pro Lights Studio Cobs and Elation Paladin Cubes.
TSL also supplied a number of Litepanel Astra panels for providing key light for the ESPN Studio and interview areas.
