Last year, the colossal entities of combat sports, WWE and UFC, merged into a single dominant force known as TKO, ushering in a new era of unparalleled sports entertainment.
With some time having passed since the merger, the TKO brands have made a strategic decision to collaborate in promoting their events simultaneously, all within the same city and around the same timeframe.
UFC recently utilized their official X account to make a noteworthy announcement. They revealed their partnership with their co-brand, WWE, as they prepare to make a grand entrance into Anaheim, California, during Presidents Day Weekend. This exciting collaboration will feature two spectacular events within the city, promising an unforgettable experience for fans and enthusiasts alike.
“UFC & WWE Takeover Anaheim 💥
Two Big Events 👊
One Epic Holiday Weekend 🎉

WWE Raw will take place on Monday, February 19, while UFC 298 will happen two days prior on February 17 which will see Alexander Volkanovski taking on Ilia Topuria in the main event. Both events are scheduled to take place at the Honda Center.
With both entities already marketing dual events together, it could be no time before we see some crossover action in some newly designed combined events, pitting WWE and UFC fighters in matches or storylines. The past has already seen crossovers, so that seems to be a high possibility, now that they are both under the same umbrella.
