The Ultimate Fighting Championship recently confirmed UFC on Fuel TV 7 was set for Feb. 16 at an “international location,” but declined to reveal that location.
MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday confirmed with independent sources a UK Daily Mirror report that UFC on Fuel TV 7 would take place at Wembley Arena, marking the promotion’s return to London.
Wembley Arena, however, should not be confused with its much larger neighbor Wembley Stadium.
While the stadium is capable of holding north of 100,000 fans in an outdoor concert setting, Wembley Arena, which is located next door, is an indoor facility with a capacity of approximately 12,500.
UFC on Fuel TV 7 marks the first time since Michael Bisping and Yoshihiro Akiyama headlined UFC 120 in October of 2010 that the promotion has held an event in London.
No UFC on Fuel TV 7 bouts have been confirmed, as of the time of publication.
