Before it became the “Nick Diaz Pre-Fight Press Conference” on Thursday, UFC president Dana White announced that the promotion will be heading to Milwaukee in celebration of Harley-Davidson’s 110th anniversary.
“To celebrate Harley’s 110th anniversary, over Labor Day weekend, the UFC will be going to Harley’s hometown for the ‘Hometown Throwdown 2013,'” White said. “We’ll be at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee on Saturday, August 31.”
White also added that the UFC and the motorcycle company have reached a new contract. No bouts have been mentioned for the card, though with UFC 163 set for Brazil earlier that month, the likelihood of it being a pay-per-view remains strong.
