Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is heading across the pond for its upcoming UFC on FUEL TV 7 event, which was recently booked for Wembley Arena in London, England, on Feb. 16, 2013, according to Full Contact Fighter. If you're wondering how the world's largest fight promotion is going to fill 90,000 seats, then you're thinking of Wembley Stadium right next door.
The Arena seats roughly 12,500.
That means there should be plenty of room for mixed martial arts (MMA) fans looking to attend the network televised event. Although no names have been attached to this card, you can bet your bottom dollar it's bound to feature some local talent.
"The Outlaw" was just one of several British bangers taking part in the promotion's last trip to England for UFC on FUEL TV 5 from the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, also featuring hometown heroes John Hathaway, Brad Pickett, Che Mills and Tom Watson, among others.
Stay tuned for future updates to the UFC on FUEL TV 7 fight card as they become available.
