The Octagon will be taking its talents to Milwaukee’s Bradley Center on August 31. UFC president Dana White (pictured) made the announcement during Thursday’s UFC 158 press conference in Montreal.
No bouts have been reported for the show at this time.
The venue was chosen via the UFC’s “Hometown Throwdown” series. The main card will air live on pay-per-view.
Milwaukee is the home of longtime UFC sponsor Harley-Davidson. White also confirmed the popular motorcycle company has re-upped their partnership with the planet’s premier mixed martial arts promotion.
The UFC made its debut in Milwaukee with “UFC on Versus: Hardy vs. Lytle.” The August 2011 event, which also took place inside Bradley Center, garnered a reported 6,751 fans for a live gate of $539,000.
Chris Lytle was rewarded with a Blackline Harley after submitting Dan Hardy in the show’s featured attraction.
