Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is gearing up for its annual summer mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza, International Fight Week, scheduled for July 5-9, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

That includes three consecutive events inside “Sin City’s” T-Mobile Arena, host to The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 25 (July 6), followed by a UFC “Fight Night” card on FOX Sports 1 (July 7), and concluding with the UFC 213 pay-per-view (PPV) event (July 8).

The promotion requested the aforementioned dates during today’s meeting with Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), according to MMA Junkie, which means the actual booking of the venue is merely a formality.

International Fight Week is more than just UFC events. Fans in Las Vegas can also participate in the annual UFC Fan Expo, the yearly Hall-of-Fame Ceremony, and watch other combat sports events like International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF).

Ticket information will be made available in the coming weeks.
