Michael Bisping and Mark Munoz have been attached to the UFC’s return to England this October. However, the event has yet to be made official by the promotion.
On Tuesday, the UFC’s United Kingdom office offered an update on plans.
“We are aware that a large number of you are asking about a possible Manchester event for October 26 this year, however we are not yet able to confirm that we are heading back to one of Britain’s most famous cities due to the many factors involved in hosting such a huge event,” the UFC stated. “We are working hard to bring the UK a card of real significance and if we are able to make this happen it would be the event of the year in Europe. Your need to book transport, tickets and accommodation in advance is appreciated and as soon as we can confirm anything, we will let you know.”
The UFC is expected to return to Manchester on October 26. The event would likely air on FOX Sports 1 and take place from the Manchester Arena.
