The Atlantic magazine has posted on its Web site an interview with Lorenzo Fertitta, vice chairman of Station Casinos who oversees the day-to-day operations of the family’s investment in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
The interview in the magazine’s December issue was given in connection with the magazine’s profile of UFC fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.
While the majority of the questions deal with the UFC, two questions discuss how Lorenzo and his brother, Station Casinos Chairman and CEO Frank Fertitta III, were handed the casino business from their father, and why the gaming company does not take bets on the UFC.
The interview does seem to be somewhat dated, though.
Lorenzo Fertitta mentions in the interview that Station Casinos is traded on the New York Stock Exchange.
The company has not been publicly traded since November 2007 after it was taken private in a $5.4 billion buyout.
