With one of the biggest fights in company history taking place at UFC 148, plus the latest UFC Fan Expo, fans already had plenty on tap next month in Las Vegas.

Now they can add even more to the list of options for the week. The UFC on Monday made official a partnership with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority for the first International Fight Week.

International Fight Week kicks off July 3 and will feature five days of events, culminating in the UFC 148 pay-per-view on July 7. And the plan is to make the Las Vegas show around Independence Day each year an International Fight Week event.
