Not just one of the biggest sporting events to come to Perth this year, quite simply just one of the the events of the year was UFC 284 at RAC Arena on February 12.
The event saw thousands making their way to our little old corner of the world from many other corners of the world, proof in the pudding that there’s a big desire to watch mixed martial artists in action.
The same fans who enjoyed that weekend in February will be chomping at the bit with the news that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champ Jon ‘Bones’ Jones will be visiting Australia for a week in August.
The visit comes ahead of one of UFC’s all-time great’s retirement fight against Stipe Miocic in November at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Jones is in good shape too, having just won at UFC 285 after submitting Cyril Gane in under two minutes to become UFC heavyweight champ.
Jones visit to Australia is a chance for fans to do a meet and greet with Jones before watching him train and coach or pickup exclusive tickets to Group Training Sessions.
Jon ‘Bones’ Jones arrives in Perth on Wednesday 9 August, and you can find out more and buy tickets here.
