It’s as if the sports world convened to give loyal fans a weekend for the ages. Come February 2014 both Super Bowl AND UFC 169 will be taking place during the same weekend. With UFC 169 Fight Night scheduled for Saturday February 1st 2014 and Super Bowl XLVIII taking place on Sunday February 2nd 2014, New York/New Jersey will be the site where both of these amazing events converge.
UFC 169: Saturday February 1st 2014
