WWE will be holding a live event on 3/16 in Dallas, Texas the American Airlines Center the day after the UFC 171 PPV. According to a report by Dave Meltzer, at one point WWE had deals with arenas preventing them from booking big MMA events for a period before and after their events to avoid market confusion and competition. However, arenas that get the chance to host a big UFC PPV event that can gross in the range of $2 million won’t allow WWE to dictate to them and the decision making process.
