UFC 271 is set to be the second numbered Ultimate Fighting Championship event of 2022, with an interesting venue currently being considered for the fight card.
After a huge year for the company, which saw Conor McGregor headline two events and draw massive numbers on PPV, the Ultimate Fighting Championships are set to continue into 2022 with more high profile PPV cards.
Here’s everything you need to know about UFC 271, which will be taking place in early 2022.
UFC President Dana White recently confirmed that the fight card will be taking place on Saturday February 12th 2022.
The date was noted to Aaron Bronsteter during a conversation with the public face of the company in October 2021.
Bronsteter confirmed the news on Twitter, writing: "Just spoke to Dana White who tells me that UFC 271, expected to be headlined by Israel Adesanya vs. Robert Whitaker is being targeted for either Seattle or a major Canadian city on February 12, 2022.
"Clarification: An error was made when Dana relayed this to me in our interview. Seattle and Canada are being looked at for an event in 2022, but not UFC 271."

It was believed that the event would be taking place in either Seattle or a “major Canadian city” following comments from Dana White. This would be later confirmed to be a mistake, as an event will be taking place in either Washington or Canada in 2022, just not UFC 271.
