UFC is set to return to London, and this time with a PPV event.
The promotion officially announced that UFC 286 would take place at the O2 Arena in London on March 18, 2023. It will be UFC’s third show in London within a span of twelve months.
No matches have been announced for this event so far, but it is rumored that Leon Edwards would defend the welterweight title against Kamaru Usman to headline this PPV event.
UFC 286 will be UFC’s second PPV event in the UK. The first one was UFC 204, where Michael Bisping defended the middleweight title against Luke Rockhold in the main event back in 2016.
In a press release, UFC boss Dana White stated that he loves the UFC fans in the UK, and after two successful events in the UK, he will return to the country again, and this time with a title fight.
White also added that they would put together the biggest and the baddest card at the O2 arena on March 18 next year.
One can register now to get early access to the tickets, and the general sale for the tickets of the UFC 286 PPV event will go live on January 27.
