There has been a date and location set for UFC 211.
Though there are no fights currently scheduled to take place at the event, preparations can now officially begin to be made. The UFC will be visiting familiar confines on May 13, when they return to Dallas.
The event will be held at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, home of the Mark Cuban owned Dallas Mavericks and the NHL’s Dallas Stars. This will be the fourth time that the UFC visits Dallas and holds their event in the Airlines Center.
Previously, UFC 185 in March of 2015, UFC 171 in March 2014, and UFC 103 in September 2009.
Also, no #UFC show in Vegas on Memorial Day this year. Going to Dallas on May 13 instead.

It appears the new UFC ownership is attempting to separate themselves from previous ownership that typically held these events in Las Vegas.
Those participating in the bouts will be scheduled and announced as the date draws nearer, but for now, people can begin booking their flights and making their hotel accommodations.
