On Saturday, May 10, the UFC will be back in Cincinnati for the first time since 2007, as a FOX Sports 1 televised card will take place at U.S. Bank Arena in "The Queen City."
In the UFC's previous visit to Cincy for UFC 77 on October 20, 2007, Anderson Silva defended his UFC middleweight title against hometown favorite Rich Franklin in a rematch witnessed by over 16,000 fans.
And while the main event for this card will be announced soon, three bouts have been added, with middleweight standouts Ed Herman and Rafael Natal squaring off, Australia's Ben Wall coming to the U.S. to face Justin Salas, and South African newcomer Ruan Potts making his Octagon debut in a heavyweight clash against noted finisher Soa Palelei.
Tickets for this event go on sale on Friday, March 21. Stay tuned to UFC.com for more details.
