The UFC is returning to Scottish shores.

A report from the Daily Star has stated the Ultimate Fighting Championship are looking at returning to the UK in Scotland at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow.

The UFC has previously held one event in Scotland, at the same arena for UFC Fight Night 72 on 18 July 2015.

On that fight card, current UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping earned a split decision win over Thales Leites in the main event.

The card also featured Scottish fighters Joanne Calderwood, Stevie Ray and Rob Whiteford.

Paul Craig has been added to the UFC roster since that event, so expect a large contingent of Scottish fighters on the card.

No fight card name or fights have yet been announced for the card however, expect the promotion to announce the event in the coming weeks.
