The first-ever UFC Fight Night in Saudi Arabia postponed to June 2024

Take note…

The UFC Fight Night, in collaboration with UFC, the world’s premier mixed martial arts, was scheduled to take place in Riyadh on Saturday March 2, but Riyadh Season has just announced that the performance has been postponed to June.

It has been rescheduled to ensure “the best caliber of talent will be available to participate”. UFC’s first Fight Night in Saudi Arabia will now be held on Saturday June 22 at the Kingdom Arena.

News of the fight night was first released last October by Turki Alalshikh, chairman of the General Authority for Entertainment, on his X. The event will feature UFC’s most successful and internationally known fighters.

It is still not yet known which fights will be placed on the Saudi Arabia Fight Night card, but further details of the fight card will be announced in the coming weeks. This will be UFC’s first-ever card in the Kingdom.

Beyond the octagon, Riyadh Season also immerses visitors in a diverse array of entertainment options, including concerts, exhibitions, dining experiences, and unique events featuring renowned celebrities and leading brands.
