The Ultimate Fighting Championship will be taking its talents back to London in March. UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta (pictured) announced the planet’s premier mixed martial arts promotion will launch a “European Tour” in hopes of spotting their next superstars.

“It’s going to be a significant event and we’re really excited that we’re going to be here on a consistent basis,” Fertitta told BT Sport’s “UFC: Beyond the Octagon” show of exploring Europe. “We are going to find some incredibly talented fighters from various countries in this market that someday will probably be a UFC champion.”

The UFC’s six-event Fight Night tour will hit most major European cities.

The UFC most recently hosted a card in London this past February inside Wembley Arena. Fertitta didn’t reveal an exact date or venue for their March show.

The UFC makes its long-awaited return to Manchester later this month at Phones 4u Arena with a critical middleweight bout between Mark Munoz and Lyoto Machida.
