UFC NEWS: Fourth Versus event coming on June 26, no location or venue yet set

By: Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

The UFC ran their third Versus event on Thursday night in Louisville, Ky., and they're already getting ready for the fourth one.

During the night's fights, UFC officials announced that the next Versus event will come on Sunday, June 26, at a yet-to-be determined venue.

According to a report from MMAJunkie.com, the UFC is targeting a venue in the Midwest or East Coast, and Milwaukee may possibly be the target venue. However, Milwaukee's Bradley Center has already been reported as the host site for the fifth Versus event, expected to come on August 14.

Penick's Analysis: There are multiple cities and venues throughout the Midwest and East Coast that would work for an event like this, and maybe it will give the UFC reason to head back to a city it hasn't been to in some time. They've talked about returning to Chicago and Minneapolis in the past, and also have St. Louis as a possible location in the Midwest as well. They could also debut in a newer market that they haven't run yet either, but as of now it's up in the air.
