The Octagon will stop in Chicago on Jan. 25 for UFC on Fox 10, the third Fox event to be held at United Center. On Feb. 1, the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. will play host to the previously announced UFC 169. And on Feb. 22, the UFC will return to its home base for UFC 170, an event slated for Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Events Center.
White made no mention of it during his reveal, but previous UFC plans called for a Jan. 4 event in Singapore, which Mark Fischer, the UFC’s Managing Director of Asia, said in August was the first of many dates where fans in Asia will get a glimpse of the Octagon next year.
“This marks a bold step for UFC’s expansion in Asia and is the first of a series of events in Asia planned for 2014. After kicking off the year in Singapore, our fans can expect several other UFC events around the region on the docket next year, including two more fights at the Venetian’s Cotai Arena in Macau.”
More details, including fights, venues and ticket on-sale information will be released as it becomes available in coming weeks, as the UFC nails down details of its 2014 schedule.
