UFC® returns to the UK and comes to Nottingham
The Ultimate Fighting Championship® organisation has announced that it will make its highly anticipated return to the UK on Saturday 29 September 2012 at Capital FM Arena Nottingham. The card will feature a British bantamweight contender and a recent The Ultimate Fighter® Live contestant as well as many others.
The event will be a first for the UFC® in Nottingham and will see Newcastle’s Andy Ogle meet fellow TUF alum Akira Corassani of Sweden in a featherweight bout. Ogle was a semifinalist on the most recent season of The Ultimate Fighter Live where he was injured and unable to compete in the Finale. He petitioned the UFC President for a shot to fight in his native country and secured the meeting with Corassani.
English bantamweight contender, and two-time UFC Fight of the Night winner, Brad Pickett, will square off against Canadian Yves Jabouin.
“We are very excited to be going to Nottingham for the first time,” commented UFC Managing Director of International Business, Marshall Zelaznik. “Some of the biggest names in British mixed martial arts are from Nottingham and the fans have been campaigning for us to bring a fight here for years. The UK fans are among the most passionate UFC supporters on Earth and this is going to be a special night.”
