We could be less than a month away from the UFC running events on “Fight Island” and now the promotion has apparently filed four new trademarks for “UFSEA,” with those filings being similar to the ones for “Fight Island.”
Washington-based Trademark Attorney Josh Gerben revealed through Twitter that the filings were regarding “entertainment services,” “MMA competitions” and “special events.”

The filings indicate an intent to use the UFSEA trademark in connection with mixed martial arts events and a clothing brand.

The application reads, under the goods and services section of the filing, as follows (via MMA Fighting):
“Entertainment services, namely, arranging and conducting mixed martial arts competitions and events; arranging and conducting special events for social entertainment purposes; entertainment services, namely, providing non-downloadable audio and video recordings featuring sports and mixed martial arts via the Internet, television, cable and satellite; entertainment services, namely, a multimedia program series featuring sports and mixed martial arts distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; educational services, namely, instruction in the field of fitness and mixed martial arts; providing instructional programs and classes in the fields of fitness and mixed martial arts; sports training services; physical fitness training and conditioning services; and providing information relating to entertainment, sports, mixed martial arts, and sporting events.”
There has been no comment yet from the UFC as to what the trademarks they apparently filed for will get used for.
