The UFC is bringing a big promotional event to Los Angeles.

On Wednesday, the promotion announced that there will be a “special” press conference Friday with “more than a dozen fighters” promoting upcoming UFC events. The press conference is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. PT and will be held at The Orpheum Theatre in LA. The festivities will be followed by the UFC 227 ceremonial weigh-ins.

For fans, tickets will be required. They can be obtained for free through, beginning at 10 a.m. Thursday morning.

No fighters have been officially announced for what the UFC is calling its “25th anniversary seasonal press conference.” Tyron Woodley and Darren Till, who will headline UFC 228 on Sept. 8 in Dallas, will be on hand, officials told MMA Fighting.

There have been no official announcements for headlining bouts for UFC 229 on Oct. 6 in Las Vegas or UFC 230 on Nov. 3 at New York’s Madison Square Garden. It’s possible those announcements will come at the press conference Friday, which will be hosted by UFC president Dana White.

UFC 227 is headlined by a bantamweight title fight pitting champion T.J. Dillashaw against former champ Cody Garbrandt. In the co-main event, Demetrious Johnson goes for 12 straight flyweight title defenses against Henry Cejudo.
