UFC will be finally heading back to its fight capital Las Vegas and they have already announced the schedule for it.

UFC Apex

After numerous events on Fight Island, the UFC will return to Las Vegas for a total of eight cards between Halloween and Nov. 28 including the return of Dana White’s Contender Series. The Nevada State Athletic Commission officially approved all of the events during a meeting on Wednesday.

After UFC 254 wraps up in Abu Dhabi on Oct. 24, the promotion will head back to the APEX for the upcoming card headlined by former middleweight champion Anderson Silva against Uriah Hall on Oct. 31. UFC won’t stop here as from November 4 they’ll be back with the eighth episode of Dana White’s Contender Series.

 'Silva vs Hall' on Oct. 31

Next up, the promotion will offer another Fight Night card on Saturday, November 7, which will be followed by another episode of the Contender Series and another Fight Night the following Saturday. The Contender Series cards will take place on Nov. 10 and Nov. 17, which will serve as the season finale.

The next Fight Night card will then take place on Nov. 7 with light heavyweights Thiago Santos and Glover Teixeira expected to headline the show, although the promotion hasn’t officially announced that matchup yet.

The added Fight Night card will take place in Las Vegas on Nov. 14 but no main event has been confirmed for that card. UFC 255 will go down on Saturday night, Nov. 21 from Las Vegas followed by the final Fight Night card of the month on Nov. 28. A pair of flyweight title fights are anticipated to headline UFC 255 as Valentina Shevchenko takes on Jennifer Maia while Deiveson Figueiredo will face off with Alex Perez.

While the UFC has only officially confirmed cards for Las Vegas through Nov. 28, the promotion is not expected to return to Abu Dhabi until 2021.

The APEX will serve as the venue for the next eight events through November, including the final three episodes of season 4 of Dana White’s Contender Series. There are lots of fights to be announced and the card will be stacked in no time. Another big announcement that could take place shortly is Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 2 and also a fight for Tony Ferguson in those cards by the end of November or maybe December.
