UFC International Fight Week set for July 7-12 in Las Vegas

The UFC confirmed Wednesday that International Fight Week is set for July 7-12 this year in Las Vegas.

The ninth edition of International Fight Week will feature The UFC Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, which is scheduled for Thursday, July 9 at the Palms. The 2020 list of inductees have not been released as of yet, but a new inaugural Forrest Griffin Community Award is expected to be unveiled.

Then, there is the UFC Fan Experience, set for Friday, July 10 and Saturday, July 11. Fans can enjoy live entertainment and mingle with UFC fighters and personalities, with autograph and picture opportunities available.

The week wraps up with UFC 252, which is set for Saturday July 11 at the T-Mobile Arena. The main event has not been confirmed by the company, but speculation persists – aided by comments from president Dana White – that Conor McGregor, who recently returned to the octagon with a dominant win over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246, could possibly headline the card if he waits for the winner of the Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson lightweight title bout at UFC 248 in April.

White has said he thinks McGregor will likely wait for the results of the Nurmagomedov-Ferguson bout before making a decision.

More information is expected to be released as we get closer to International Fight Week.
