The Ultimate Fighting Championship will return to Ireland on July
UFC officials Thursday announced the organization’s intent to
revisit the Irish capital of Dublin, though no fight bookings were
revealed for the summer event.
Additionally, UFC executive Garry Cook revealed that the Las
Vegas-based promotion is exploring a 2015 debut in the Scottish
capital of Glasgow.
While the UFC has never before hosted a show in Scotland, the
organization previously visited Ireland in 2009, when UFC 93 was
held at the O2 Dublin. Dan Henderson
defeated Rich Franklin
in the evening’s light heavyweight main event, while Mauricio Rua
punched out Mark Coleman in
their co-headlining rematch.
