The UFC have announced a series of events which will take place throughout the city during the week. It was revealed today by the organization that The Ultimate Fighter: Finale has been moved to Vegas from South Florida and will take place at the MGM Grand, the same venue which will host UFC 189: Aldo v McGregor the night before.

The UFC’s 4th annual International Fight Week will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada on the week ending Sunday 12th July.

The events scheduled throughout the week include kickboxing (hosted by ISKA and WAKO), grappling (hosted by USBJJF and USJJO) events and also the IMMAF Amateur MMA World Championships which include teams representing the Republic of Ireland coached by John Kavanagh and Northern Ireland coached by Rodney Moore.

The Irish team is set to feature amateur standouts such as James Gallagher, Frans Mlambo, Sinead Kavanagh and Kiefer Crosbie.

Carl McNally, Ross McCorriston, Steven Moore, Glenn Irvine, Mark McGlinchey and Denis Perry are among the prospects that will represent Northern Ireland.

The championships will be streamed live on UFC FightPass.

There will also be the usual fight week festivities and chances for fans to meet UFC stars throughout the week including an unveiling of the new UFC Kit on Friday at the MGM Grand.
