Last year, the UFC International Fight Week was postponed until September due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2022, the fanfest’s 10th anniversary will return to its normal summer schedule.
The UFC announced that International Fight Week will take place from June 27 to July 3 in Las Vegas. As part of the ceremony, UFC 276 takes place inside T-Mobile Arena on July 3.
“We are excited to announce the return of UFC International Fight Week to Las Vegas this summer and look forward to providing our fans with greater access, a wide variety of activations and more memorable experiences than ever before,” said the head of UFC operations. Officer Ike Lawrence Epstein said. “IFW is our annual event that celebrates all things UFC and combat sports, and we couldn’t do it without our partners at the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.”
Additionally, the UFC Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place that week. The Las Vegas Convention Center will also host amateur tournaments beginning June 23. There will be a fan experience event July 1-2 and, as is normal protocol with fight weeks, there will be weigh-ins, press conferences and more.
In the midst of those festivities, WWE will host its Money in the Bank event on July 2 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. It is unknown if WWE will host other events during that weekend. From now on, UFC 276 and the Money in the Bank program will not collide with each other.
No main event has been announced for UFC 276 yet. Stay tuned as more details will be released in the coming months.
