UFC UK Office: Nothing Official Yet Regarding October Card

The UFC’s United Kingdom office has no new news regarding a rumored October return to Manchester, England.

Previous reports have Michael Bisping and Mark Munoz colliding from the Manchester Arena on October 26, with the event likely airing on FOX Sports 1.

However, the UFC UK Facebook page updated fans on the reports recently.

“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 last visited Manchester in late 2009.
