The UFC will return to Indiana for the first time in almost exactly two years this September with UFC on FX 5.
The event was first reported by the Indy Star and is headed to the renamed Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. Tickets will go on sale for the event on July 20.
UFC 119, the promotion’s last event held in the state (and the first), took place on September 25 at what was then called the Conseco Fieldhouse. Though the fight card failed to deliver (UFC president Dana White withheld the Knockout of the Night bonus from Frank Mir, who scored the only knockout on the card at the end of a lackluster bout against Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic), it generated a solid live audience and gate — enough to bring the promotion back, anyway.
There are currently no fights attached to UFC on FX 5, rumored or otherwise.
