UFC 72 In Ireland After All; UFC 73 July 7th

After lots and lots of back-and-forth flip flopping of dates and venues it appears, for now at least, that we know the dates and locations for all of UFC’s “numbered” events through early July. UFC 71 will still be held on May 26th in Las Vegas so no changes there. “UFC 72”, which we originally thought to be the name for the July 7th event, will instead be held June 16th in Ireland. The event priously known as UFC 72 will be UFC 73 on July 7th with the location still to be determined.
