The UFC is officially set to make a return to London’s O2 Arena on 16 March of the year 2019.
It will be the eleventh time that an Ultimate Fighting Championship event will be holding in the capital of England.
And that is also inclusive of Britain’s Michael Bisping’s win against Anderson Silva back in 2016.
No formal announcement is in place at this point in time for fighters or line-ups for next year’s date, though.
UFC light heavyweight and Londoner, Jimi Manuwa has suggested it would be a “dream” to fight in his home city.
And that is by the Briton going ahead to add: “There is nothing like the London fans,” he summed up.
Fellow British UFC welterweight, Danny Roberts went on: “I have had some of my best career highlights in London.
“And I know that every time I perform right there, I will be adding another one to the long list.
“MMA fans are some of the best sporting fans in the world and that is as far as I know.
“And London to me is that one city that I know they will show me that very support,” he concluded.
White wants UFC to host Mayweather, Khabib bout
UFC president, Dana White wants the body to play host to the bout between both Floyd Mayweather and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Boxer, Mayweather should step into the octagon to clash with Nurmagomedov in a “real fight”, that is according to White.
American boxer, Mayweather is allegedly demanding a nine-figure payday to go into the ring and fight with UFC star, Nurmagomedov.
Meanwhile, the pair of Nurmagomedov and Mayweather have both handed out defeat to UFC fighter, Conor McGregor in recent times.
The 41-year-old Mayweather has now told yet another UFC fighter and the latest champion, Nurmagomedov to “come into my world”.
And that he should make a bout happen, believing he will earn him much more than his fight with McGregor.
Mayweather defeated McGregor in August of the year 2017 in a fight which generated above £450m and earned him £210m.
Nurmagomedov on the back of beating the Irishman on his return to UFC called out Mayweather himself, asking for a fight.
But White who had initially dismissed Mayweather-Nurmagomedov talk wants to see the fight hold in a mixed martial arts arena.
“Listen, if Mayweather wants to fight, come fight but you will have to fight in the UFC,” White informed TMZ.
“We are not boxing again and that is because we did that once but that is over.
“You want to fight? I am telling you to come and fight but it has to be a real fight.” The UFC head summed up.
