RENO, Nev. (July 25, 2023) – Grand Sierra Resort and Casino (GSR) has fight fans covered with the ultimate viewing party for the highly-anticipated UFC 291: Poirier vs. Gaethje 2 at LEX on Saturday, July 29. This event promises to deliver an exhilarating evening for mixed martial arts enthusiasts, offering a one-of-a-kind viewing experience for UFC fans.
UFC 291 sees former Lightweight Champion Dustin Poirier meeting Justin Gaethje in the middle of the octagon once again after they first met in 2018 in what many considered “Fight of the Year.” Poirier earned a fourth-round TKO in their first bout, and now Gaethje looks for revenge in the main event to see who is the “BMF” of the UFC. The stacked card also includes a co-main event light heavyweight bout between Jan Blachowicz and Alex Pereira, who is moving up to the 205 pound weight class and looking to rebound after his loss earlier this year.
Located next to the newly remodeled William Hill Race & Sportsbook, LEX offers guests a unique experience to catch all the high-octane action and world-class fighters. Multiple high-definition screens provide perfect views to catch every punch, kick and takedown in stunning clarity. LEX’s luxurious atmosphere along with spacious and comfortable seating and state-of-the-art sound system, ensures an unparalleled viewing experience.
