WWE Money in the Bank is scheduled for July 2, the same night as UFC 276. UFC pay-per-views in July are typically some of the biggest UFC cards of the year as they are part of International Fight Week.
WWE Money in the Bank was originally scheduled to be held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, but the company 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 Tony Khan, who added 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, Dana White commented on WWE making the move.
"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," he said.
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.
