UFC London official for O2 Arena on March 19

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will make its long-awaited return to the United Kingdom for a special “Fight Night” mixed martial arts (MMA) card on Sat., March 19, 2022, from inside O2 Arena in London, England.

That’s according to UFC President Dana White.

“Every time we put on an event in London, it’s an unbelievable experience,” White told ESPN. “The fans are incredible, and the fights are always off the charts. It’s a different kind of energy in England. And I can’t wait to get back there with a fight card on March 19.”

UFC London tickets go on sale on Feb. 4.

This will mark the promotion’s first UK event since COVID-19 shut down international operations back in 2020, a decision that also cost fight fans the welterweight showdown between Leon Edwards and Tyron Woodley.

Here’s a list of rumored matchups for UFC London on March 19:

125 lbs.: Jake Hadley vs. Allan Nascimento
125 lbs.: Luana Carolina vs. Molly McCann
125 lbs.: Cody Durden vs. Muhammad Mokaev
145 lbs.: Makwan Amirkhani vs. Mike Grundy
135 lbs.: Jack Shore vs. Timur Valiev
265 lbs.: Shamil Abdurakhimov vs. Tom Aspinall
115 lbs.: Elise Reed vs. Cory McKenna
