The UFC has decided against staging UFC 83 in Manchester, England and is working to relocate the show to the U.S.
Although a source I spoke with confirmed that the U.K. event has been cancelled, no specific were provided as to why. However, the show will go on, only here in the states.
The original plan was for the March 8 event to be held at M.E.N. Arena, which was the venue for UFC 70 in April 2007. The show played to a sellout crowd of 14,921 and generated a gate of more than $2.5 million. With numbers like those, it’s highly likely the UFC lands back in Manchester in 2008. It just won’t be in March.
