Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will hold a live press conference this afternoon (Fri., Aug. 3, 2018) from inside The Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, Calif., with more than a dozen mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters on hand to promote the organization’s 25th anniversary season.
That means a boatload of fight announcements for the rest of the calendar year (see the remaining events here). Since Nate Diaz vs. Dustin Poirier already leaked (details), it will be interesting to see what else the promotion has in store.
Hosted by UFC President Dana White, the festivities get underway at 4:30 p.m. ET (1:30 p.m. PT) and precede the UFC 227 weigh in event. With that in mind, don’t expect any fighters from the “Dillashaw vs. Garbrandt” fight card to be on hand.
