It is still unclear what exact location the tour will stop in D.C., as well as the fighters that will be participating. The tour will make a stop in Waldorf, MD at Willie Nelson's Country Throwdown Tour on June 18, and it will continue to Baltimore on June 21.
The tour is essentially an 18-wheeler truck and two Octagon-sized tents that will provide the "ultimate fan experience," according to the release. "Surprise" fighters will be making appearances on each stop of the 18-stop tour, which begins Thursday in Las Vegas and concludes on June 30 back in Las Vegas.â†µ
