MMA fanboys, do we have some great news for you. During Thursday’s press conference, UFC president Dana White (Pictured) confirmed the organization will be hosing a UFC Fan Expo inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 6th and 7th.

“We love giving UFC fans ultimate access to our sport and athletes,” White stated. “This July, we’re putting together our best UFC Fan Expo yet. We’re going to have dozens of our fighters in attendance to sign autographs and meet fans, and we’re going to have some of the world’s top vendors and exhibitors. This is an absolute can’t-miss event for UFC fans around the world.”

The expo boasts 300,000 square feet of autograph and photo sessions, grappling competitions, UFC presentations, vendor booths and more. Past conventions have taken place in Las Vegas, Boston, London, Toronto and Houston.

The two-day festival coincides with a yet-to-be announced pay-per-view extravaganza on that Saturday. That show is expected to take place across the street at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Tickets for the UFC Fan Expo are now on sale NOW and range from $40 to $45 for a single-day pass and $60 for both days. Prices will increase as 4th of July weekend draws closer.
