UFC President Dana White will give his keynote speech at the UFC® FAN EXPO™ on Saturday, Aug. 28 at 1pm ET at the main stage inside the John B. Hynes Convention Center in Boston. Immediately following the keynote speech, White will take part in a Question and Answer session with fans.
With strong ties to the Boston area, White is excited to return to his roots and present the East Coast with an event featuring some of the sport’s most influential fighters, brands, and sponsors.
