It appeared 2011 would come and go without a UFC visit to the United Kingdom, but now the promotion is poised to land on Great Britain’s shores on Nov 5 for a Spike TV UFC Fight Night Event.
Sources close to the event first revealed rumors for the show to MMAWeekly.com on late Monday night, and on Tuesday the full details were revealed.
The show will take place on Nov. 5 at the LG Arena in Birmingham, England, which holds approximately 8,000 people.
The event will air on Spike TV as a UFC Fight Night, but no other details were available at the time of publication in regards to if it will air as a tape delayed broadcast or live at all in the U.S.
MMAWeekly.com has also learned that a few fighters have been contacted about possibly appearing on the Nov 5 show, but no match-ups have been confirmed at this time.
