UFC 200 at MGM Arena

UFC 200 will take place at the new MGM-AEG Arena on July 2, 2016.

With a successful UFC 189 this past weekend in the books and a long history of hosting events at MGM owned arenas (MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay) it only makes sense that UFC would hold events at the new Las Vegas arena.

The new MGM arena could potentially be the home arena for the Arizona Coyotes and the Milwaukee Bucks. Another Mayweather fight has long been rumored for the arena, and there will likely be some college basketball tournaments held there as well.

Aside from sports, the arena will certainly host a number of concerts throughout the year. Having a high number of events will be key to supporting the many restaurants and shops near the arena.
