It is being reported that the planet’s biggest MMA organization will resume its assault on the U.K as the UFC will host an event in Manchester on November 14th. Company president Dana White stated that although popular Brit Michael Bisping was knocked out by Dan Henderson, he would most likely be on the organization’s next U.K. show.
UFC U.K. president Marshall Zelaznik recently confirmed the news to Ariel Helwani of Versus.
“Yeah, let’s make it official. We’re looking at November to be in Manchester. It’s been too long, we need to get back there,” Zelaznik stated. “November 14th is when we will be back there. Right now I have no idea who is fighting.”
Bisping might not know about it, but White already threw his name out there before the middleweight had even awoken after eating Hendo’s right hand.
“Bisping’s probably gonna fight in the next fight [card] in the U.K.,” White stated at the UFC 100 post-fight presser.
Although he was left dazed and confused that night, the timing works out perfectly as Bisping was only medically suspended until September 10th for precautionary reasons following his loss of consciousness.
It’s possible that U.K. stars Dan Hardy and Terry Etim will also be showcased on the Manchester card, which will likely be entitle “UFC 105.”
Zelaznik also indicated that the organization was leaning towards making the show available for $FREE.99 in the U.S. on Spike TV, however could not confirm as of yet.
