Alves vs. Perry, Lombard vs. Smith slated for UFN: Pittsburgh

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

The UFC is planning an event on the same night as the highly-anticipated Canelo Álvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin boxing match.

The Fight Night card, scheduled for Sept. 16, is slated for Pittsburgh, Pa. Two fights that have been recently added to it are Thiago Alves vs. Mike Perry and Hector Lombard vs. Anthony Smith. first reported the Alves-Perry fight was scheduled for Aug. 19, however, the UFC recently canceled that card and moved the fight to Sept. 16. also reported last month that Lombard-Smith was originally set for the same card in August. The promotion canceled that event due to its proximity to the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor boxing match on Aug. 26.

Álvarez-GGG, one of the biggest boxing matches in recent memory, will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

It’s unclear at this time who will headline the Pittsburgh event for the UFC.
