The UFC has returned to its busy schedule following a three-week break over Christmas.
Right now, the promotion has scheduled weekly events for the foreseeable future and it all started with Max Holloway vs. Calvin Kattar at UFC Fight Island 7 on Jan. 16.
It is entirely free to enter the UFC Best Seats promotion. However, the competition is only open for legal permanent residents of the United States who are older than 21 years of age.
One lucky winner and a guest will be awarded a round trip flight for two to Las Vegas, Nevada, besides hotel accommodations, free attendance to UFC 259 at the UFC Apex, and a unique custom fight kit, all worth $3,000.
To be eligible to win, competitors have to register at the UFC Best Seats website during the timeframe in which the promotion is valid. The registration form includes full name, e-mail address, complete home address, mobile phone number, and consenting to the official terms and conditions.
The enrollment period for the UFC Best Seats promotion began January 22 at 9 a.m. Pacific Standard Time and will end on Sunday, February 21 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Standard Time.
The details of the competition were revealed by an excited UFC president Dana White, who seems delighted to welcome fans to a live event in the United States for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic began in March 2020.
This Saturday, we have what is expected to be the biggest UFC pay-per-view event since Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Conor McGregor (UFC 229) when McGregor returns to face Dustin Poirier in a lightweight clash that is likely to decide who proceeds to fight for the UFC Lightweight Championship.
In February, Kamaru Usman will defend the UFC Welterweight Championship against Gilbert Burns at UFC 258.
And in March, UFC middleweight Israel Adesanya will attempt to secure his second title when he takes on light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz at UFC 259.
