Also UFC and WEC Cagefighting has been at Arco Arena . Urijah Faber Sacramento’s own fought at WEC fighting championship had a fight at arco arena and he had a big win .
here are some of my favorite memories at Arco Arena , Going to WWE Raw and smackdown and meeting Wrestlers . I met Roman Reigns in 2015 Roman Reigns is a WWE world heavy weight champion he will be fighting Triple h at this years WrestleMania for the WWE championship .Roman Reigns was is so nice he is one of the best champions he is one of the best and strongest wrestlers .
I like after the games I go by where the players come out and I have friends from the radio stations and they cover the kings Deuce MoMo and Sports and Jason Ross they work at the sports talk radio station and my friend Richard works kings games at the arena. I wait to get autographs from players and coaches and I wait to say hi to my friends Deuce MoMo and Jason Ross and Richard then I walk them all to safety to their cars and make sure they made it safe to their car . they are my good friends
I got to play basketball and shoot some hoops at Arco Arena on the kings court. Mike Tavares started the grass roots movement group crown downtown which helped the kings get their new arena and they went to city council meetings and also helped save the kings and not move Crown downtown showed that the Sacramento kings had a lot of fan support they went to NBA league meeting and told owners not to vote for relocation . The Sacramento Kings organization let the fans play on the court. it was pretty fun this is me and my friend Mike Tavares
I’ve also met some kings players after games . I met coach Jerry Reynolds he used to coach the Sacramento kings and is the tv announcer for the kings. I met Shaq when he came to a kings game these are some of my favorite and good meomories at Arco Arena
