FightWeekThe Ultimate Fighting Championshi’s third annual International Fight Week returns to Las Vegas July 1-6, 2014. The weeklong celebration for fans returns with its biggest plans yet and something for everyone including entertainment, dining, arts, charitable events, shopping and, of course, all things UFC.

The event will also feature, for the first-time ever, two huge fight cards in one weekend in the UFC’s hometown of Las Vegas, and at the same venue!

UFC 175 takes place on Saturday, July 5, while The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale will be on Sunday, July 6, both at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Several of the hottest locations in Las Vegas will host UFC themed events and fans will have access to UFC stars and celebrities. The UFC Fan Expo will also return with new activities, youth and adult, grappling and martial arts tournaments, fan contests, live performances showcasing Las Vegas talent, more main stage activities, and exciting experiences for fans to interact with fighters.

Other fan favorite activities will return including a pool party with Octagon Girls, training sessions with fighters, a free concert, weigh-ins and more. Appearances, activities and on-sale dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

“Two of the world’s most recognizable brands, UFC and Las Vegas, have developed a strong and successful partnership that delivers unrivaled excitement to millions of loyal fans around the world,” said Rossi Ralenkotter, president/CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. “UFC International Fight Week provides fans with unprecedented access to UFC stars and no destination matches the passion and energy like Las Vegas.”

During UFC International Fight Week, tens of thousands of fans head to Las Vegas, the UFC’s hometown and fight capital of the world, to meet UFC fighters and talent, experience what Vegas has to offer and witness action-packed events.
