, , ,

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Salt Lake City, Utah for the third time in the promotion’s history for UFC 291. For the first time since August of 2022, SLC will host a UFC event, and Saturday’s event will feature a battle of Lightweight legends in the main event.

The headline bout will feature a former interim UFC Lightweight Champion Dustin Poirier taking on Justin Gaethje for the symbolic BMF title. The BMF title is up for grabs after original holder Jorge Masvidal retired from the sport earlier this year. The last time Gaethje and Poirier met was back in April of 2018 when Poirer’s hand was raised as the victor after a fourth-round KO.
