By FCF Staff
After weeks of speculation as to where and when Jon Jones versus Alexander Gustafsson will take place, UFC President Dana White has announced the fight will go down September 27th in Las Vegas.
While the date and city are official, the exact venue has yet to be determined.
Initially, it was thought that Toronto, Ontario was the front runner for Jones-Gustafsson II, which is the city that hosted their first encounter. The light-heavyweight champ Jones won the September 21st bout via unanimous decision.
In addition, White announced that as expected, TJ Dillashaw will rematch Renan Barao on August 30th. The fight will be take place at Sacramento’s Sleep Train Arena.
Dillashaw stopped Barao at UFC 173 in May, and in doing so, ended the former bantamweight champ’s 33 fight undefeated streak.
