The UFC announced several events for its European market, including a July return to Scotland.
This Saturday’s UFC London card will mark the first of several trips to Europe for the promotion in 2017. In an announcement made on Thursday, UFC officials confirmed dates, venues, and broadcast platforms for the following shows:
Sunday, July 16th on Fox Sports 1: Glasgow, Scotland (The SSE Hydro)
Saturday, September 2nd on Fight Pass: Rotterdam, the Netherlands (Ahoy Rotterdam)
Saturday, October 21st on Fight Pass: Gdansk, Poland (Ergo Arena)
The UFC held their debut shows in Poland and Scotland back in 2015. Mirko Cro Cop’s KO win vs. Gabriel Gonzaga headlined UFC Krakow in April, while Michael Bisping’s split decision over Thales Leites topped the UFC Glasgow card in July. Last May, the UFC staged an FS1 card in Rotterdam, with Alistair Overeem knocking out Andrei Arlovski in the main event.
No fights have been announced for any of these events. The UFC also has an FS1 event in Stockholm, Sweden on Sunday, May 28th, headlined by light heavyweights Alexander Gustafsson and Glover Teixeira.
