UFC on Versus 2 on Aug. 1 in Utah, UFC 117 on Aug. 7 in “northern California”
The Ultimate Fighting Championship has contacted Utah’s state athletic commission and reserved Aug. 1 for a UFC on Versus event at Salt Lake City’s EnergySolutions Arena.
That’s the word from the Utah Athletic Commission’s Bill Colbert, who confirmed the plans with MMAjunkie.com and Scott Sherman of The Salt Lake City Tribune.
MMAjunkie.com first reported last week that the UFC planned to host a show in Utah. However, the date we initially reported – Aug. 7 – instead will feature a traditional UFC pay-per-view event, UFC 117, in “northern California,” a source close to the organization said.
