For the first time in their history the UFC will host two events in one day on May 31st.
First up will be ‘UFC Fight Night 41’ in Berlin, Germany, the third time the promotion has held a show in the country.
“We are incredibly excited to announce this event, and it is fantastic news for the many UFC fans throughout Germany and the rest of Europe,” Executive VP and MD of UFC EMEA Garry Cook stated. “We are delighted to be returning to Germany in May and visiting Berlin for the first time. Germany is one of the leading world superpowers in sport and to be able to host a UFC Fight Night to our passionate German fans will be an honor.”
So far no fights have been announced for the event and it’s not clear where the show will be broadcast, though the ‘UFC Fight Pass’ subscription service seems like a safe bet at this stage.
The second event, which will air later the same day, is one we already knew about – another ‘Fight Night’ event in Brazil which will feature a much talked about fight between the two ‘Ultimate Fighter Brazil’ season 3 coaches Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva.
It’s possible that this show will also serve as the finale for the TUF Brazil 3 show and again at this stage it remains to be seen whether this event airs on FOX Sports 1 or the ‘Fight Pass’ service.
