The UFC announced its return to London’s O2 arena today.
A press release confirmed the UFC will hold an event at that venue on 21 March 2020.
As yet, no fights have been announced for the next UFC London card. However, there have been growing rumours about a possible bout featuring Darren Till and former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker.
Liverpool’s Till headlined the UFC’s last visit to the UK in March this year. There, he suffered the first knockout loss of his career against the resurgent Jorge Masvidal, kick-starting the Cuban’s ‘resurrection.’
