UFC Is Returning To London

The UFC is making another trip overseas.

The promotion announced on Thursday that it will be returning to London’s O2 Arena on July 23. The second trip comes after a successful fight night event in March, which became one of the highest grossing fight nights in UFC history.

No bouts have been officially announced for the card, but MMA Fighting reported that undefeated flyweight Muhammad Mokaev is targeted to face Charles Johnson for this event.

Mokaev – who debuted at the London event in March – was one of the blockbuster fights that made UFC Fight Night 204 a success.

The other fights that drew much attention were Tom Aspinall’s submission victory over Alexander Volkov and highlight-reel performances from English fighters Arnold Allen, Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann.

On Wednesday, Aspinall posted on Instagram that a “massive fight” is in the works.

At the March event, UFC President Dana White awarded every finish on the card with a $50,000 bonus and admitted they would most likely host a second event in London this year.
