OCTAGON RETURNS TO THE GREAT WHITE NORTH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Canada for the first time in almost four years when it hosts UFC 289 inside Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, on Sat., June 10, 2023.

While Rogan was absent for several events in 2021 — taking a break from July to November — this will mark the third straight PPV event that he has been tasked to call. As usual, Megan Olivi will be tasked with cageside and backstage reporting, and UFC Middleweight champion Michael Bisping and former Light Heavyweight title contender, Anthony Smith, will serve as analysts for the pre- and post-event shows.

UFC 270 will feature two title fights with the main event pitting former training partners against each other as Heavyweight kingpin, Francis Ngannou, battles current interim champion, Ciryl Gane. In the co-main event, Brandon Moreno will defend his Flyweight title against Deiveson Figueiredo, the man he took the belt from seven months ago.
