Amanda Nunes VS Juliana Peña III In Vancouver!

Dana White, president and partial owner of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has finally announced a date and main event for the UFC’s return to Vancouver!

It’s been a long time since the UFC came to B.C. The last event held in Vancouver was UFC Fight Night in September 2019. That event was headlined by Justin Gathje and Cowboy Cerrone. Justin Gathje won the fight launching his 2020 title run campaign.

Now the UFC is set to make its return to Vancouver, for UFC 289! There was deliberation between Vancouver and Calgary for the event but ultimately the decision boiled down to the Calgary Flames still being in playoff contention, and the Canucks having no shot.

Dana took to Instagram last week to share the good news with fans. He announced the event will take place in Vancouver on June 10th, at Rogers Arena. Local fans were ecstatic to hear the UFC would be making its return as multiple local fighting promotions and fighters shared the news.

Shortly after Dana made the announcement the UFC announced that the headliner of the pay per view (PPV) would be Amanda Nunes VS Juliana Peña three. Peña won the first fight to claim UFC gold but Nunes battled back in the second to regain her title. Now the two will settle the score in Vancouver.
