Las Vegas, NV – UFC President Dana White will officially welcome fans to the second UFC® FAN EXPO™ on Friday, May 28 at 12PM PT during his keynote speech scheduled for the main stage inside the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

After the resounding success of the first-ever UFC Fan Expo last July, White is excited to present a second event featuring some of the sport’s most influential fighters, brands, and sponsors.

“We’ve added even more cool stuff to this year’s UFC Fan Expo,” White said. “Our goal was to make this Expo even bigger and better, and give our fans an experience that is second-to-none in the sports world."

Immediately following the keynote speech, White will take part in a Question and Answer session with fans. Then, at 1PM, the UFC Fan Expo will host a “Dana White Look-Alike Contest” on the main stage, with winners receiving great UFC prizes.

“I’m pretty interested to see the look-alikes that show up,” White said with a laugh. “Between that and the Q&A, it should be a fun way to kick off this year’s event.”

Tickets for the UFC® FAN EXPO™ are on sale now and can be bought exclusively at www.ufcfanexpo.com. This year’s event leads into UFC® 114: RAMPAGE vs. EVANS, featuring the long-awaited grudge match between former light heavyweight champions Rampage Jackson and Rashad Evans.
