Tillman Fertitta is the owner of Landry's and the Houston Rockets.

Not sure if he is related to the Fertittas who used to own UFC

He's their third cousin.

From Wikipedia:
Fertitta and his wife Paige live in the River Oaks neighborhood of Houston with their four children, Michael, Patrick, Blayne, and Blake. He is the third cousin of former UFC owners Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta. An avid sports fan, Fertitta is a vocal supporter of the University of Houston Cougars and can be seen at most Cougar football and basketball games as well as court side for Houston Rockets basketball games. In 2016, Fertitta donated $20 million to rebuild Hofheinz Pavilion for University of Houston basketball along with donations for the construction of TDECU Stadium.
