Nevada Commission Approves Three UFC Events for Las Vegas in June

By Tristen Critchfield May 12, 2021


It appears that the UFC Apex in Las Vegas will remain the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s home base for the time being.

The Nevada Athletic Commission approved events on June 5, June 19 and June 26 at the promotion’s own venue, which has been the setting for the vast majority of UFC bouts during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The only other event scheduled for next month, UFC 263, takes place at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Ariz. on June 12. There are no audience restrictions in place for that card.

UFC Fight Night 189 takes place on June 5 and is headlined by a heavyweight clash between Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Augusto Sakai; UFC on ESPN 25 goes down on June 19 and is topped by a featherweight duel between Chang Sung Jung and Dan Ige and UFC Fight Night 190 on June 26 features a heavyweight matchup between Alexander Volkov and Ciryl Gane.

The promotion is hoping to have crowds return to Las Vegas for UFC 264 on July 10, which is headlined by a trilogy bout between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor at the T-Mobile Arena.
