A boxing superfight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao that is expected to take place on March 13 in Las Vegas will force the UFC to move UFC 111 from the date to another Saturday in March, according to UFC President Dana White.
“The UFC and pac man vs mayweather will not be the same night,” wrote White on Twitter. “I am pumped for that fight and will be there for that one!”
UFC 111 will reportedly take place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey and is expected to be headlined by welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre vs. challenger Dan Hardy.
According to the Prudential Center’s official calender, the venue is unavailable on March 20 due to an NHL game between the New Jersey Devils and St. Louis Blues, but is open on March 6 and March 27.
