Conducted some research on your question with MMA and the timeline you listed as well as any mention of it being held in an Indian Casino. Here is what I have been able to locate for you to see if this is something you wish to follow up with:

June 30, 2001 -- Answering a call from the Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino (then the The Palace Indian Gaming Center) in Lemoore, Calif. for MMA events at the venue, XXXXX XXXXX and Reed Harris start up World Extreme Cagefighting and the first event is headlined by Dan Severn vs. Travis Fulton. Leonard Garcia, who has stayed with the WEC until the end, is in the second fight of the night and wins by knockout.

As for broadcast info:

Reed Harris and XXXXX XXXXX began the promotion back in 2001, and for the next five years held a majority of their events locally in Lemoore, Ca. on a native Indian reservation.

Between 2001 and 2006, most of their events aired on HDNet.
