UFC Fight Night Event Set For Texas, Not Turkey, This November

ufc fight night 57

Sorry Turkey, you will not be getting UFC this November as previously reported.

UFC Fight Night 57 will take place November 22 from Austin, Texas, replacing a planned visit to Istanbul this year. The card was announced on “UFC Tonight” Wednesday evening.

So far, no bouts have been made official for the return to Austin. The last time the UFC stepped foot in “Longhorn Territory” was 2010 when Nate Marquardt and Rousimar Palhares squared off.

Once again, this card will take place inside the Frank Erwin Center, which is located on the University of Texas campus. The arena holds 16,000 and drew just short of 8,000 four years ago.
