UFC President Dana White Comments On WWE Moving Money In The Bank To A Smaller Venue UFC

UFC President Dana White has commented on WWE moving Money In The Bank to a smaller venue against UFC 276.

WWE Money In The Bank is scheduled for July 2, which is the same night as UFC 276. UFC pay-per-views in July are typically some of the biggest events of the year for the company because of International Fight Week.

Money In The Bank was originally scheduled to be held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, but WWE moved the show to the smaller MGM Grand Garden Arena. UFC 276 will be held at the T-Mobile Arena.

The news of WWE moving venues was broken to UFC President Dana White by AEW President Tony Khan, who said on social media:

“Genius move trying to take on Dana and the UFC in Vegas during International Fight Week.”

Appearing on The Spinnin Backfist MMA Show, White commented on WWE making the move to a smaller venue.

He said:

“To be fair to the WWE, they were probably looking at it and their ticket prices were a lot cheaper and there would be a lot of people in town. International Fight Week is a rough week to do it.”

UFC 276 will be headlined by two title fights as Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya defends against Jared Cannonier and Featherweight Champion Alexander Volkanovski defends against Max Holloway.

Jim Ross noted that Dana White was at AEW’s recent events in Las Vegas during Double Or Nothing week.
