UFC set to return to England in October, Liverpool’s Echo Arena targeted

The UFC will make its long awaited and promised return to England this October with the Las Vegas promotion targeting an October 15th date at Liverpool’s Echo Arena for its next UK event.

The UFC has previously held 10 shows in the United Kingdom with the last being UFC 120 in October 2010. This will mark the organizations first trip to Liverpool, England. The Echo Arena opened in 2008 and can hold approximately 11,000 fans.

Earlier in the year the UFC’s UK president Marshall Zelaznik had predicted that there could be a string of events in the UK in 2011, now it looks like this very well could be well the only event held in the UK this year. So far no fights have been scheduled for the event, but the UK’s best known fighters like Michael Bisping and Dan Hardy are sure to be featured on the card.
