UFC Returns to Cincinnati with Fight Card in May

Posted on by Erik Fontanez

UFC LogoThe UFC will return to Cincinnati on May 10 with a fight card at the U.S. Bank Arena, the company announced on Wednesday.

The card will air on FOX Sports 1 and will be part of the UFC’s Fight Night product, mostly likely to be labeled as UFC Fight Night 40.

No fights were announced for the upcoming card, but bouts are expected to be named in the coming weeks, according to a report from Cincinnati.com.

The organization’s previous trip to Cincinnati was UFC 77. The event was headlined by a middleweight title fight that pitted then-champion Anderson Silva defending his title against the man he took it from, Rich Franklin.

Tickets for the UFC Fight Night card will go on sale March 21.
