UFC Plans Full Vegas Crowd In July At Poirier-McGregor Fight

The UFC intends to welcome a capacity crowd at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena on July 10 when Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor fight for the third time.

UFC President Dana White announced his plan Wednesday for the promotion's first sellout show in its hometown since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

The world's biggest mixed martial arts organization hasn't fought in front of more than a few dozen fans in Las Vegas since the pandemic began. The UFC has held its near-weekly shows in its empty gym on its corporate campus in Vegas or at Abu Dhabi's Fight Island.
