The first show for FOX Sports 1 will go down in Boston, MA. UFC President Dana White confirmed the report earlier today. White has promised a sick card after a nearly two year hiatus from the state.
The last time the UFC was in Massachusetts, the promotion saw then lightweight champion Frankie Edgar defeat BJ Penn in the main event of UFC 118. The show drew 14,168 fans for a $2.8 million gate.
No official name has been given to the event. All that’s known is it comes from the TD Garden on August 17.
Earlier in the week, White guaranteed that the UFC would return to Boston this year.
