Dana White is the President of the UFC and is certainly a controversial figure in the world of MMA. Dana White was also previously accused of an ‘illegal crime’ in Las Vegas.
Money in the Bank will be taking place on July 2nd at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. WWE will also run SummerSlam, one of its biggest events of the year, on July 30th at Nissan Stadium in Nashville. UFC has two huge events scheduled for both of those days.
UFC 276 will feature a main event in the middleweight division between Israel Adesanya and Jared Cannonier. The co-main will see Alexander Volkanovski face off against Max Holloway in a featherweight war between two more big names. Dave Meltzer talked about this on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio.
“It’s interesting because July 2nd and July 30th there’s going to be a big UFC pay-per-view. The second, especially. It’s a big UFC against a stadium WWE, head-to-head, same city. [On the] 30th, they’re in different cities, but still a head-to-head pay-per-view.
It’s not like years ago where this would’ve been death to WWE. The same weekend used to hurt WWE badly, but the same night would’ve, I don’t want to say killed them, but it would’ve taken probably 15-20% off. Maybe more. Now, a WWE pay-per-view is not a money expenditure, so it’s not like you’re going, ‘I’ve already spent $40 on a pay-per-view on a Saturday night, do I do that again on a Sunday?’”
