The UFC may be having a rare weekend of from hosting an event, but in the meantime they have been busy touting their next two big pay-per-views in the new promo videos below.
First up is a new promo for UFC 266 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, which sees them field two title fights, with featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski going up against his TUF coach rival Brian Ortega in the main event, while flyweight queen Valentina Shevchenko seeks to defend her belt against Lauren Murphy. That’s not all though as the event will also play host to a rematch between two legendary veterans as Nick Diaz returns from a long hiatus to lock horns with Robbie Lawler.
Meanwhile, the promotion has also unleashed a new promo hyping up their return to Fight Island in Abu Dhabi for UFC 267.
While this event is known to be headlined by a light-heavyweight fight between Jan Blachowicz and Glover Teixeira, in addition to a bantamweight title rematch featuring Aljamain Sterling and Petr Yan, that’s not the focus of the video.
Instead, it’s the destination that gets all the attention here, with Dana White declaring Abu Dhabi to be the new ‘Fight Capital Of The World’ as they prepare to put on a full week of fan-friendly activities prior to the event.
