UFC 271 expected to land in Houston, Texas

NBA: Phoenix Suns at Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is expected to bring its UFC 271 pay-per-view (PPV) event to the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, on Sat., Feb. 12, 2022, the promotion’s third appearance in “The Lone Star State” since returning to live, in-person events last May.

That’s according to a report from MMA Junkie.

UFC 271 was expected to be headlined by the middleweight rematch between reigning champion Israel Adesanya and former titleholder Robert Whittaker; however, some behind-the-scenes hiccups have left that do-over in doubt.

Here’s the latest UFC 271 lineup:

155 lbs.: Alexander Hernandez vs. Renato Moicano
135 lbs.: Douglas Silva de Andrade vs. Sergey Morozov
155 lbs.: Mark Madsen vs. Vinc Pichel
185 lbs.: AJ Dobson vs. Jacob Malkoun
135 lbs.: Kyler Phillips vs. Marcelo Rojo
125 lbs.: Roxanne Modafferi vs. Casey O’Neill
170 lbs.: Orion Cosce vs. Mike Diamond
205 lbs.: Fabio Cherant vs. Carlos Ulberg
135 lbs.: Ronnie Lawrence vs. Mana Martinez
205 lbs.: Maxim Grishin vs. Ed Herman

Expect an official announcement in the coming days.
