The details have yet to be fleshed out, but the UFC’s manager of international development, Marshall Zelaznik, confirmed the return in an interview with Whoa! TV, while in Sweden for UFC on Fuel TV 2.
“Our expectation is that in September, we will be in the U.K. It won’t be Liverpool,” said Zelaznik, shooting down the rumors about Liverpool before announcing the U.K. return. “We haven’t announced the venue or the location or the date, but we will be back. The fans can rest assured, we will be coming back. Everyone is excited to be back and we’re hoping to bring a big card.”
The promotion was last in the U.K. in November of last year for UFC 138, when Mark Munoz scored a victory over Chris Leben in the main event.
