On the heels of the success of the UFC Fan Expo event in Toronto, the promotion has announced their next major Fan Expo taking place in Houston, Tex. on October 7 and 8.
UFC President Dana White made the announcement on Friday during the Fan Expo.
“UFC Fan Expo, Houston, Texas, October 7th and 8th,” White stated.
The weekend of October 8 would presumably serve as a UFC pay-per-view as well, but it’s unknown at this time what numbered event that would end up being.
This will be the UFC’s first visit to Texas for a Fan Expo in the promotion’s history.
White mentioned earlier in the week that UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez could return in October, and with an event of the magnitude of a Fan Expo being attached, a title fight between the champion and the winner of Junior Dos Santos and Brock Lesnar could be just the headliner the UFC is looking for.
