Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently booked the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, for its upcoming UFC 211 pay-per-view (PPV) event, locked and loaded for Sat., May 13, 2017.
Kevin Iole tweeted the date and venue on Monday night; however, no bouts have been assigned to the card as of this writing.
The world’s largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion hasn’t seen action in “The Lone Star State” in nearly two years, courtesy of UFC 185, when Anthony Pettis coughed up his 155-pound title to Rafael dos Anjos.
A lot has changed since then.
I don’t know much about Texas except for what I saw in Pee Wee’s Big Adventure (clap-clap-clap deep in the hearrrrrt of Texas) but I’m sure it’s a swell place to live. Heck, any state good enough to birth a fighter like Sage Northcutt is okay in my book.
Stay tuned for upcoming UFC 211 fight announcements in the coming weeks.
