We've been hearing for years that Las Vegas' fight schedule is supposedly oversaturated.

But the statements of armchair promoters haven't jibed with those involved in the fight business in real life, who crunch the numbers and then continue to blanket the world's fight capitol with major events.

And that includes UFC 191.

The Sept. 5 event will be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, MMAFighting.com's Ariel Helwani reported on Wednesday's edition of UFC Tonight.

No fights have yet to be announced for the event.

This marks the second straight year the UFC will host a numbered PPV event in Las Vegas in September. Last year, UFC 178 was held at the MGM on Sept. 27. It also means Vegas will host a minimum of five UFC PPVs in 2015, as UFC 191 joins UFC 182, UFC 183, UFC 187, and UFC 189.
