The dumbest arena name in America?


UFC on Versus 3 takes place March 3 at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Ky., and the night’s main card airs on Versus.

It’s an accepted revenue stream to let corporations whore their brands out via arena names, but where’s the quality control, people? I think Louisville might seize the crown that’s been vacant since Nashville’s Gaylord Entertainment Center (just one part of the Gaylord empire) changed it’s name to the Sommet Center.

    I guess “KFC Sho Is Good Center” was too long.

    Can’t wait for the Harmony Cum Pavillion.

    its a dumb name, but it could have been worse. when they were trying to lure an NBA team they wanted to name it the KFC Bucket. i think they were trying to make it weirder than the Papa John’s sponsored football stadium.

    i do believe there are a few bourbon bars in there. Evan Williams/Heaven Hill and Woodford Reserve sponsored i think.
