The UFC’s next visit to the UK could be May in Liverpool, England

The UFC are targeting a May date for their return to the UK, with the city of Liverpool number one on the list for the very first time. The Echo Arena set to play host. It remains unclear whether the event will be a numbered event or a UFC Fight Night event.

The North West town is home to the Wolfslair MMA Academy and Team Kaobon, Nottingham runs a close second, being the HQ of Rough House, but that is a team rather than a gym and so only the team sparring sessions are conducted in Nottingham (at the Liberty Gym).

Team Kaobon (Terry Etim, Paul Kelly, Paul Taylor, Mark Scanlon), The Wolfslair (Michael Bisping, Cheick Kongo, Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson, Kurt Warburton, Rob Broughton, Tom Blackledge, Aaron Wilkinson) and UFC vet Jason Tan, formerly of Next Generation Liverpool and now the head of Liverpool MMA.
