UFC Targeting Liverpool, England For October 2011 Event

UK fans disappointed with the lack of UFC events in the region so far this year will be happy to hear that an event is in the works for later this year.

According to MMAfighting.com, the UFC have earmarked Liverpool, England as the destination for an event on October 15th.

Earlier in the year the UFC’s UK president Marshall Zelaznik had predicted that there could be a string of events in the UK sector in 2011, but the promotion’s plans are constantly evolving, and with so much demand for their product in other regions around the world, and problems scheduling UK events from a U.S TV perspective, it may be that this will be the only event held in the UK this year.

So far no fights have been scheduled for the event, but the UK’s best known fighters like Michael Bisping and Dan Hardy are sure to be vying for a spot on the card.
