The UFC is bringing a pay-per-view to the U.K. in 2023.
The promotion announced on Wednesday that UFC 286 will take place March 18 at The O2 in London.
UFC president Dana White had openly discussed the potential of doing a stadium show in the U.K., but the promotion ultimately settled on a return to The O2.
The UFC held two events at The O2 in 2022 – UFC Fight Night 204 in March and UFC Fight Night 208 in July – to rousing fanfare after the promotion held off on traveling to the U.K. because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
UFC 286 will make the first UFC pay-per-view in London since UFC 120 in October 2010. That night, Michael Bisping defeated Yoshihiro Akiyama by unanimous decision in the main event.
