UFC Headed To Georgia In January

The UFC’s return to Georgia is official for January 15, as UFC Fight Night 35 takes place.

In the main event, former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold takes on Costa Philippou. Other bouts announced to date include Cole Miller-Sam Sicilia and Lorenz Larkin-Brad Tavares.

“Atlanta’s been home to two huge fight cards in the past and we’re bringing another one to the area on January 15,” UFC President Dana White said. “We’ve got the No. 6 UFC middleweight Luke Rockhold, who was a champion in Strikeforce, taking on the ninth-ranked Costa Philippou, who’s got heavy hands and knockout power. We’re on an incredible hot streak of live events and the fans at Gwinnett Center can expect a great night of fights!”

Tickets go on sale later this week through several different avenues. They go on sale this week.
