The UFC is back in Ireland for the first time since 2009...
It's official. The UFC will make its return to Ireland on Saturday, July 19, with a star-studded UFC Fight Night event at the O2 Arena in Dublin.

This marks the UFC's first event in Ireland since UFC 93 in January of 2009.

In the first bout made official for the event, it's a meeting of welterweight unbeatens, as Iceland's Gunnar Nelson takes on New York's Ryan LaFlare.
