The Ultimate Fighting Championship continues to expand its reach with an event planned for July 13 in Sioux Falls, S.D.
Expected to be dubbed UFC Fight Night 91, company president Dana White confirmed the event in Sioux Falls to Argus Leader Media.
“We’re coming here in July,” White told the Argus Leader from his ringside seat at Friday night’s RFA 37 at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls. White was in town to witness the RFA fights and film footage for his Lookin’ for a Fight web series.

UFC Fight Night 91 would mark the promotion’s first event ever in South Dakota, which didn’t begin sanctioning MMA until 2014.
Although White confirmed the date for the event, he fell short of announcing any fights for the card. UFC Fight Night 91 will take place at the Denny Sanford Premier Center, and will be broadcast live on Fox Sports 1.
