The UFC Is Going Back To Cali

UFC president Dana White announced after UFC 98 that UFC 104 would take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The promotion’s lone trip to the Staples Center was at UFC 60, where Matt Hughes took on Royce Gracie in the main event.

Although the previous event saw ticket prices nearly cut in half off due to less than stellar sales, the UFC has decided to give the home of the Los Angeles Lakers another chance.

There have been no fight announcements or rumors yet as the event was just announced last night at the UFC 98 post fight presser, but we’ll have more information on it as it trickles in.

The current tentative date for the UFC’s return to Los Angeles is October 24th.
