Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will be heading back to London, England, for another “Fight Night” mixed martial arts (MMA) event inside the world-famous O2 Arena on Sat., March 17, 2018.

The promotion revealed the plans on Wednesday.

“London is always a landmark event for UFC; the fights, fans and city itself always deliver. To see how the organization has grown from the first event at The Albert Hall in 2002 is incredible,” said UFC Senior Vice President, International and Content, David Shaw.

This will mark the promotion’s 10th event in London.

“Our dedicated fans have helped us grow the sport in the UK to where it is today and we are delighted to bring our 10th event to London. 2018 will be an exciting year for UFC in EMEA and we will certainly be kicking things off in style in March.”

Tickets go on sale Feb. 18.

No fights have been attached to the card as of this writing and it’s unclear whether this will air live on FOX Sports 1 or UFC Fight Pass, though you can expect that announcement sooner, rather than later.
