UFC 221 Coming To Perth, Australia
On Monday evening, the promotion announced that the UFC will debut in Perth, Australia, making a stop at the Perth Arena on February 11th (February 10th in North America) for UFC 221. It will be the 12th time that the UFC has visited Australia having prior events in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, and Gold Coast.
This marks the UFC’s second trip to Australia in four months, with UFC Sydney taking place on Nov. 18.
The press release included comments from interim middleweight champion Robert Whittaker, the first UFC titleholder of Australian descent.
“This isn’t just huge news for UFC, but for the sport of MMA in Western Australia…. Finally, MMA can be competed nationwide in the field of play specifically designed for the sport.
“Anything can happen between now and Sunday, February 11. With that said, fighting on home soil is always a dream come true and I’d love to unify the UFC middleweight title here in Australia.
No bouts have been booked for UFC 221.
