UFC today announced its highly anticipated return to Ireland, set to take place at the 3Arena on Saturday October 24.
Following a hugely successful event in 2014, which saw tickets sell out in under an hour for UFC FIGHT NIGHT: McGREGOR vs. BRANDAO, the organisation immediately stated they would hope to return to the ever expanding market in 2015.
Joe Carr, Vice President of International for UFC commented: “Ireland has been such an important market to the UFC and we couldn’t let a year go by without delivering another spectacular event for the fans in the capital. We’re looking forward to showcasing both local and international talent at the event and hopefully getting the decibel counter higher this year round.”
