The famed MGM Grand garden arena in Las Vegas, Nevada was the venue, this weekend, for one of the best UFC card’s in recent memory. Two titles were up from grabs on Saturday night and, with Jon Jones recently stripped of his strap, we knew at least one new champion would be crowned.
Dana White has revealed the promotional push the company is giving to UFC 189 at a press conference at the MGM Grand on Friday.
“Over a million PPV buys and we’ll probably break even,” White said. “That’s how much money we’re spending. We’re spending lot of money.”
High-profile withdrawals notwithstanding, tonight’s UFC 187 is without the question the biggest card of 2015 to date. For the first time in almost four months the promotion returns to its spiritual home of Las Vegas for not one, but two, mouth-watering title-fights.
In fact, top to bottom, there does not look to be one potential dud among the 12 scheduled bouts set to be decided at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Understandably, speculation abounds, so we’ve narrowed it down to five talking points to streamline the discourse.
