The O2 Arena to host UFC Fight Night London on March 16

UFC will return to London on March 16 next year as the MMA promotion returns to the capital for an 11th consecutive year.

UFC Fight Night London will take place at The O2 Arena, with tickets for the event on general sale from February 1.

Shows in London have yielded some memorable moments, including Michael Bisping’s brilliant win over Anderson Silva in 2016.

“There’s nothing like the London fans, especially for me as it’s my home town,” said UFC light heavyweight and Londoner Jimi Manuwa.

“Walking out to a packed O2 Arena, looking at the crowd and seeing so many familiar faces is a dream in itself.”

Fans are advised to register their interest via ufc.com/London to gain early access to tickets and to follow @UFCEurope on Twitter for all the latest updates.

Tickets to UFC Fight Night London go on general sale on February 1 via AXS and Ticketmaster. Fight Club members will have the opportunity to purchase tickets early on January 30, while those who registered their interest early in this event will gain access on January 31.
