Just four months after the UFC’s last visit, the octagon is returning to London for another huge night of fights.
Thursday lunchtime, UK-time, the UFC announced that they were coming back to London for their second event in the English capital in the space of four months.
The UFC’s March event in London was a huge success, as a host of British stars produced memorable performances in front of a raucous crowd at The O2 Arena.
The night made such an impression on UFC president Dana White that he vowed to bring the octagon back to the UK later in the year.
It was SOOOO good we're doing it again! 🇬🇧

UFC London will take place on Saturday, July 23, and looks set to follow a similar template to their previous visit, with a fight card likely to be packed with Brits once again.
Muhammad Mokaev is already booked for the card, and will take on debuting former LFA champion Charles Johnson as he looks to repeat his crowd-pleasing octagon debut from March.
Also already signed on for the event is Sweden’s former light heavyweight title challenger Alexander Gustafsson, who will face Nikita Krylov.
More bouts are set to be announced in the coming days and weeks.
