It has not been a month since UFC held its Fight Night at Liverpool. The event took place on March 19 inside The O2 Arena. The fight card was headlined by the heavyweight bout between Tom Aspinall and Alexander Volkov.

The fight card also included the recent hype train Paddy Pimblett as he fought Kazula Vargas in a lightweight bout. Both Aspinall and Paddy Pimblett are considered superstars in the UK and it helped the promotion to boost its sales. The plan worked extremely fine as Fight Night had around 17k attendance and was fully sold.

The fights that took place were celebrated by the fans and the crowd was cheering for their favourite fighters. The energy and atmosphere were electrifying and overall turned out to be a massive event.

After hosting a massive event like UFC Fight Night 204 in the UK, the promotion will try to achieve that success again.

Former MMA connoisseur, Al Zullino recently shared a tweet on his official Twitter account. In the tweet, the Italian opened up about UFC’s plans to come back to the UK. Zullino revealed that as per his sources, UFC will be returning to the UK this July. According to the journalists, the location of the event is yet to be decided but it is most probably going to take place in Liverpool. “BREAKING: UFC is returning to the UK in July, per sources.Location TBC, but more than likely it’s going to be in Liverpool, I’m told.,” wrote Zullino.

UFC has always been an expert organisation when it comes to capitalising on chances for maximum profit. Going back to Liverpool is a great move and will give guaranteed success.

To top things off, UFC can get UK based fighters such as Darren Till, Paddy Pimblett and Tom Aspinall on the fight card. The presence of these fighters will help in getting maximum attention from the UK fans.

While there have been no official announcements regarding this, UK fight fans will be truly excited about getting back live MMA action in their hometown.
