UFC On Fuel TV 7 Expected To Serve As Return To London

The UFC appears to be heading back to London, as MMAFighting.com first reported on Tuesday that UFC on Fuel TV 7 will take place inside the Wembley Arena.

It’s been over two years since the UFC last entered London, with Michael Bisping defeating Yoshihiro Akiyama in the main event. That card took place inside the O2 Arena, drawing over 17,000.

Wembley Arena is designed to hold 12,500, but could make more room with floor seating opening up.

No bouts have been announced for the card, but the UFC typically stocks England events with British-born fighters. That could mean Dan Hardy, Jimi Manuwa, John Hathaway and others would be announced in the coming weeks.
