Fighters Only revealed today that The Ultimate Fighting Championship has already determined the date for their next “UFC Live” show to air on the Versus network.
The UFC successfully debuted on Versus this past Sunday night with a fight card headlined by Jon “Bones” Jones and Brandon “The Truth” Vera with a co-main event pitting heavyweight upstart Junior dos Santos against Gabriel Gonzaga. The fight was held in Broomfield, Colorado at the First Bank Center.
The next “UFC Live” event will take place on August 1st in Oakland, California, at a venue yet-to-be-announced.
The UFC’s current deal with the Versus network (home to the UFC’s sister fight promotion, the WEC) is to hold two shows per year under the UFC banner. After a lengthy contract dispute, Versus was allowed its place back in the DirecTV fold just in time for Sunday’s event.
