Outsourcing MMA Event Lighting

I'm planning to hold an MMA event later this year and I want to have professional lighting for the event. It will be held in a small venue that seats about 1,500 people. The lighting rig won't be able to be hung. What should I expect to pay for lighting this event? Any things I should keep in mind when looking for someone to light the event? There needs to be plenty of light on the ring and crowd since this may air on local tv at some point.

Mixed martial Arts. Like a boxing ring.

Google for a staging company in your area and ask them.

$20,000 for the "do it on the cheap" low end, and $40,000.00 to do it right.

You could, depending on the venue, ground support a truss box (40'x40') off Genies. This would get a 'flown' rig and also give you somewhere to hang PA. You can light the ring with PARs. I think the budget that's already posted is about right.

If you look at a PPV fight done in Vegas, they won't use a much more complicated rig, just a larger one with some movers and leko specials.

Hope this helps.
