On Fourth of July Weekend, the UFC will be hosting the UFC Fan Expo and International Fight Week along with UFC 175 and The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale.
The night of the Fourth, there will be a concert at Fremont Street in Las Vegas for fans to attend.
On Wednesday, the headliners for the concert were announced and they are Papa Roach, P.O.D. and Lit. Yeah, you read that correctly. It would have been an exciting line up a decade ago, but at least those in attendance will have the always incredible Fremont Street Experience to distract them.
Along with the concert, the UFC has a full line up events throughout the day including a 5K, World Cup Viewing Parties, Lion Fights 16 and the UFC 175 weigh-ins.
