UFC is all set to conduct its first-ever event in Paris later this year on September 3 at the Accor Arena.
It will be the promotion’s first event in France, and the tickets for it will go on sale on June 23. Fans can also register themselves via ufc.com/paris to secure their tickets in advance.
Dana White stated that they’ve been working on getting into France for almost a decade, and now it’s finally time for it. White is as excited as everyone and he assured the fans that UFC Paris will be an unbelievable night of fights.
No matches have been announced for UFC Paris so far. However, Robert Whittaker and Marvin Vettori have already shown their interest to face each other in the main event on September 3.
France banned MMA back in 2016 but then ultimately legalized it in 2020. UFC’s first trip to the French territory was postponed due to the pandemic, but now they are set to make history by holding the first-ever UFC event in France at the Accor Arena.
