UFC®, the world’s premier mixed martial arts promotion, today announced its return to Perth for UFC®251 at RAC Arena on Sunday, June 7.
In partnership with the State Government, through Tourism Western Australia, this event marks UFC’s return to Perth with a Pay-Per-View event following UFC® 221: ROMERO vs. ROCKHOLD in February 2018.
Hot off the heels of a record-breaking year, UFC fans in Perth can look forward to a championship main event and a world-class fight card come June… and the first bout is already confirmed.
In a five round title fight, UFC women’s flyweight champion, Valentina “The Bullet” Shevchenko will take on challenger and UFC’s No.3 women’s flyweight, Joanne “JoJo” Calderwood from Scotland. Kyrgyzstan’s reigning champ, Shevchenko is fresh off her victorious title defence at UFC® 247: JONES vs. REYES earlier this month by TKO.
