UFC is set to close out 2023 with a trio of events culminating in a PPV event from Las Vegas. After a year of stunning upsets and championships changing hands, the promotion caps it off with some interesting matchups.
First will be a visit to Austin, Texas with a key lightweight bout atop the marquee. Beneil Dariush and Arman Tsarukyan are set to throw down as both men look to hold their place in the lightweight rankings and get a future title shot.
The company then hosts UFC 296 at the T-Mobile Arena on Dec. 16, sticking to its tradition of closing out the pay-per-view calendar in Las Vegas. A pair of title fights top the card: welterweight champion Leon Edwards vs. Colby Covington and flyweight champ Alexandre Pantoja vs. Brandon Royval. UFC president Dana White also announced title fights for the first three pay-per-views of 2024.
