Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just one day away from the upcoming UFC 291 pay-per-view (PPV) event on ESPN+, scheduled for this Sat. night (July 29, 2023) at Delta Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. UFC 291 will be headlined by the “BMF” lightweight title fight between longtime 155-pound veterans Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje, a rematch more than five years in the making. In the UFC 291 PPV co-main event, former light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz welcomes ex-middleweight titleholder Alex Pereira to the 205-pound division with a future title shot awaiting the winner. Fan favorites Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson, Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson, and Kevin “Trailblazer” Holland will also see action this weekend in “The Beehive State.”
