UFC Returns to London Feb 2013

UFC® SET TO RETURN TO LONDON ON 16th FEBRUARY 2013 AT WEMBLEY ARENA
London, UK – The Ultimate Fighting Championship® organisation has announced that it will return to England’s capital on Saturday 16th February, 2013.
 
The event will be the fifth time the UFC® has come to London since its conception in 1993, the first being back in July 2002 with UFC 38: Brawl at the Hall which was held at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall. Since that first event, there have been four events held at the 02 Arena, most recently with sell-out crowds to see UFC 120: Bisping vs. Akiyama. This will be the first time the UFC® has ever brought a show to Wembley Arena, the iconic London venue that holds in excess of 10,000 people.
 
“The UFC has seen significant international growth with nearly a third of all the live events now held outside the USA. London is one of the world’s major capital cities and is a fitting host to kick off 2013 for the first of three European events taking place this year,” commented UFC’s Executive Vice President and Managing Director of EMEA, Garry Cook. “We work hard in Europe to keep UFC at the leading edge of MMA and as always our show will not disappoint our loyal followers.”
 
Wembley Arena is the capital’s second-largest arena, located opposite the legendary Wembley Stadium, home to England’s football team. The arena has had a vast range of renowned acts grace its stage, including everyone from The Beatles to the Spice Girls, The Rolling Stones to Beyoncé. In 2013 the UFC® will sit alongside other great sporting events, such as the 1948 and 2012 Summer Olympics, hosted at the arena.
