The UFC has announced it’s return to The O2 arena in London, for a February 27 Fight Night. This will mark the first European UFC event of the calendar year.
Although no bouts have been officially announced for the card, the event is expected to feature UK veterans Michael Bisping, Brad Pickett, and Ross Pearson, who have all expressed interest in returning to London.
Joe Carr, Vice President of International at UFC spoke on the rise of European MMA, as well as his excitement for UFC London.
UFC and MMA have enjoyed a phenomenal level of success and growth across Europe in recent years and London remains a particularly important market for us.
We recently sold out the 3Arena in Dublin in a matter of seconds and the SSE Hydro in Glasgow a few hours after going on sale earlier this year, therefore this event will be a great opportunity for fans who missed out on tickets to those dates to secure a seat this time around.
When you combine the fantastic fan support with a growing roster of world class British and Irish fighting talent, it’s difficult to predict anything other than an unforgettable, sell-out event in London on February 27.
We’ll keep you posted with featured bouts, as they are announced. Tickets will be made available to O2 Priority and UFC Fight Club members on Tuesday, December 1st. They will be availble to the general public on Friday, December 4th.
