The MMA Corner has learned that the UFC will host a Fan Expo in Las Vegas on the weekend of UFC 148.

The event is expected to take place on July 7 from “Sin City” as the promotion holds its annual Fourth of July weekend event.

Venues for the two events have not been announced, but if the past is any indication, the MGM Grand Grand Arena will host the bouts, while the expo is likely to occur at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

Mandalay Bay has hosted two previous Fan Expos, coinciding with UFC 100 in 2009 and UFC 114 in 2010.  Las Vegas did not host a Fan Expo in 2011.
