lorenzo-fertitta-2.jpgThe two-day UFC Fan Expo returns July 5-6 when the fan festival heads to Las Vegas to coincide with this summer’s big UFC 162 event.

UFC officials today announced the details.

The expo takes place at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. Its sister property, MGM Grand Garden Arena, hosts UFC 162, which airs July 6 with a pay-per-view headliner between UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman.

Expo tickets are $40 for Friday or $45 for Saturday. Two-days passes run $60. They can be purchased at www.ufcfanexpo.com. (UFC 162 tickets, which must be purchased separately haven’t yet gone on sale.)

The two-day fan festival boasts 300,000 square feet of autograph and photo sessions, grappling competitions, UFC presentations and vendor booths, and dozens of current and past UFC fighters are expected to be in attendance. Past expos have taken place in Las Vegas, Boston, London, Toronto and Houston.

Mandalay Bay also hosted UFC Fan Expos in May 2010 and July 2012.
