UFC Announces Multi-Event Partnership with Houston’s Toyota Center


The Ultimate Fighting Championship is going to be a regular visitor
to Houston for the foreseeable future.

The Las Vegas-based promotion on Wednesday announced a multi-event
partnership with the Toyota Center that will include the UFC 265
event on Aug. 7. While it was not revealed exactly how many events
or for how many years the agreement would run, it does include a
“prospective” pay-per-view card in 2022.

The organization also held UFC 262 at the Toyota Center, a card
that saw Charles
Oliveira
defeat Michael
Chandler
in the evening’s main event to claim the vacant
lightweight crown on May 15.

“I love the city of Houston. We had a sold-out event in May, the
city and fans are incredible, so we are heading right back in
August,” UFC president Dana White said. “Working with [Houston
Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta] and his team has been amazing and we
will continue making Toyota Center a home for UFC, including
bringing another PPV to the city next year.”

UFC 265 is headlined by an interim heavyweight title title between
Houston native Derrick
Lewis
and Ciryl Gane,
while Amanda
Nunes
defends her bantamweight crown against Julianna
Pena
in the co-main event.
