Ant Walker, Michael Fiedel, and Patrick Auger discuss the UFC’s plans to return to Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 30.
UFC 253: Adesanya vs. Costa is this Saturday!
- Main event: Adesanya vs. Costa 🏆
- Co-main event: Reyes vs. Blachowicz 🏆
The UFC is desperately seeking a return to its APEX Facility in Las Vegas as this would allow the promotion tighter control over its events amid the coronavirus pandemic, among other benefits.
Potentially standing in the way of the UFC’s plans, however, is the Nevada State Athletic Commission, who will decide on Wednesday, May 27, whether the event will be sanctioned.
All combat sports events are temporarily suspended in Nevada and the short three-day timeframe could render unexpected results for the UFC.
