The Ultimate Fighting Championship is heading back to Sin City next month.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission approved UFC events for Feb. 6, Feb. 13, Feb. 20 and Feb. 27 during a meeting on Wednesday. None of the cards have been officially announced by the promotion, but it is likely that all four will take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
As it stands, UFC Fight Night on Feb. 6 is expected to be headlined by a heavyweight tilt between Alistair Overeem and Alexander Volkov; UFC 258 on Feb. 13 features a welterweight championship clash between Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns; UFC Fight Night on Feb. 20 is topped by a heavyweight bout pitting Curtis Blaydes against Derrick Lewis and UFC Fight Night on Feb. 27 will see a light heavyweight main event between Dominick Reyes and Jiri Prochazka.
That means the Las Vegas-based organization is likely to return to U.S. soil following a trio of events on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi on Jan. 16, Jan. 20 and Jan. 23.
