The UFC Octagon is officially set to land in the United Kingdom for the first time since March 2019, with the promotion officially confirming their return to London, England for a Fight Night billed event on March 19. from the 02 Arena.
Per an official press release this Wednesday morning, the organization are slated to host a UFC Fight Night London billed card on March 19. – marking their first outing in the capital since a UFC Fight Night London event back in March 2019, which was headlined by a pivotal welterweight bout between former division title challengers, Darren Till, and Jorge Masvidal.
The promotion had attempted to put together a UFC Fight Night London card for March 2020, and had secured a card featuring another welterweight main event, this time against former undisputed champion, Tyron Woodley, and Birmingham native, Leon Edwards, until the entire event was shelved amid the beginning of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Per the official press release from the UFC, general tickets for the event on March 19. at the O2 Arena will be available for purchase from February 4. at 10 am GMT.
“The wait is over! UFC has today announced its eagerly anticipated return to London for Saturday, MAR 19, at The O2, marking the promotion’s 12th live event in the English capital.”
“Fight Club and The O2 priority members can purchase tickets from Wednesday, FEB 2 at 9 am and 10 am GMT, respectively. Whilst newsletter subscribers and those who register their interest can gain early access to tickets from Thursday, FEB 3 at 10 am GMT. Tickets will go on general sale at 10 am GMT on Friday, FEB 4, via AXS and Ticketmaster.”
“Following previous sell-out events, sports fans are advised to register their interest or join UFC Fight Club.”
Whilst an official headliner for the event has yet to be determined at the time of publications, homegrown talent expected to feature on the card include the likes of Tom Aspinall, Jack Shore, and Molly McCann, as well as flyweight division debutantes, Jake Hadley, and Muhammad Mokaev.
