UFC Might Return to Ireland in March 2011
UFC will dominate Ireland again in March 2011.
The famous octagon battlefield is set to return to Ireland.
According to UFC UK President Marshall Zelaznik, the promotion has plans to make its comeback in Emerald Isle sometime around St. Patrick’s Day. UFC UK events used to take place in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Zelaznik mentioned in an email to MMA Fighting, “We are targeting Dublin for 2011 and working toward March, but St. Patty’s Day may not fit perfectly for us. But hope is we will be there in ’11.”
A month ago, Zelaznik also stated to an MMA Fighting staff that UFC is marking four dates early this year for Dublin. The exact dates are still undecided but it will definitely happen on Dublin’s O2 Arena.
It was two years ago when UFC last visited Ireland. It was for UFC 72 which took place in Belfast, Northern Ireland in June 2007 while UFC 93 happened at the 02 Arena in January 2009.
Additionally, there are several other locations considered for UFC events in November but Oberhausen, Germany is the top choice at the momentView Article Source »
