After a three-year wait, the UFC is finally ready to return to London.
A London Card was held in February or March each year between 2016 and 2019, with the 2020 edition of the event being canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Prior to 2016, London had hosted UFC events seven times.
No cards were held in the English capital in 2021, but the UFC announced in January that a 2022 event would take place in March, with promotion chairman Dana White saying: “I want to say thank you to all the fans , they hung there for a long time as we scrapped and struggled and tried to figure out how to deliver it to you there.
“The UK is one of the territories I’m really excited about, and I haven’t been this excited about it since 2003 or 2004 or something like that.”
As of this writing, no fights have been announced for UFC London, but here’s everything you need to know about the event and how you can purchase tickets.
When is it?
UFC London will take place on March 19, 2022.
Where is it?
The O2 Arena will host the event.
