By Tristen Critchfield Feb 9, 2021


It appears that the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s schedule will continue to roll on in Las Vegas through March.

On Tuesday, the Nevada State Athletic Commission approved four UFC events for March 6, March 13, March 20 and March 27. Though it isn’t set it stone, that likely means that the cards will take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

The March itinerary is a significant one for the Las Vegas-based promotion, with a pair of pay-per-views highlighting the month’s events. UFC 259 takes place on March 6 and is headlined by a light heavyweight title tilt between Jan Blachowicz and Israel Adesanya. The card also features a women’s featherweight championship clash between Amanda Nunes and Megan Anderson, and a bantamweight title showdown pitting Petr Yan against Aljamain Sterling.

The March 13 UFC Fight Night 187 bill is topped by a twice-rescheduled welterweight bout between Leon Edwards and Khamzat Chimaev, while UFC Fight Night on March 20 features a pivotal middleweight scrap between Derek Brunson and Kevin Holland.

Finally, UFC 260 goes down on March 27 with a heavyweight championship headliner between Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou. In the co-main event, Alexander Volkanovski defends the 145-pound belt against Brian Ortega.
