UFC Announces Three More European Cards For Upcoming Schedule
By FCF Staff
UFC Fight Night 107 is taking place tomorrow in London, England, and the promotion will be spending a fair bit of time in Europe over the coming months as well.
The UFC has announced that it’s holding cards in Glasgow, Scotland, Sunday, July 16, Rotterdam, The Netherlands on Saturday, September 2, and Gdańsk, Poland, on Saturday, October 21.
Joe Carr, Senior Vice President, UFC International and Content, was quoted saying in the official announcement:
“Europe remains an incredibly important market for our business and has been key to the international growth we’ve seen in recent years. It was only right that we committed to delivering these three events in the region in 2017.
“Our debut events in Glasgow and Rotterdam not only sold out, but were among the most successful that we held in 2015 and 2016 respectively, so the decision to return to those cities was an easy one for us. Returning to Poland made complete sense when you consider the fan following we have and level of talent our roster of athletes continues to showcase.”
Currently the UFC has four European champions: Michael Bisping, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, Germaine de Randamie and Conor McGregor.
