Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will be heading to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) next Friday (April 6, 2018) to ring the opening bell, part of the UFC 223 fight week festivities that coincide with the “Ferguson vs. Khabib” pay-per-view (PPV) event inside Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

See the entire UFC 223 fight card and line up here.

Ringing the opening bell will be COO Lawrence Epstein along with heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, light heavyweight titleholder Daniel Cormier, middleweight kingpin Robert Whittaker, welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, flyweight deity Demetrious Johnson, and women’s bantamweight titleholder Amanda Nunes.

UFC is no stranger to NYSE.

UFC 223 will be headlined by interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson, who battles undefeated contender Khabib Nurmagomedov for the right to be called undisputed champion (adios, McGregor). In the UFC 223 co-headliner, women’s strawweight champion Rose Namajunas rematches Joanna Jedrzejczyk for the 115-pound crown.

Just over one week to go!
