White’s keynote speech will take place at 1 p.m. ET on the main stage inside the John P. Hynes Convention Center, the location of the first non-Vegas Fan Expo. White will participate in a question and answer session with fans immediately following the keynote speech.
White says he’s excited to return to his hometown. “It has always been my dream to bring an event to Boston,” White said. “With UFC 118 and the Fan Expo, we’re delivering a weekend fans in the Northeast won’t want to miss.”
The Fan Expo will be held in conjunction with Saturday’s UFC event headlined by a lightweight title rematch between champion Frankie Edgar and B.J. Penn. A “boxing vs. MMA” bout between James Toney and Randy Couture will serve as the co-headlining bout for the event.
Tickets for the event are still available on UFCFanExpo.com.
