When FOX Sports 1 launches on August 17 the UFC will play a major role in helping draw eyes to the network thanks to a ton of programming and a live event. However, the organization’s presence on the network won’t stop there, as a number of shows featuring UFC content have already been linked to the channel as have additional cards including an August 28 offering.
Though no bouts have been linked to the lineup, fans at least have a location to work with as officials have confirmed the Wednesday night fun will unfold in Indianapolis at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
UFC on FS 2 will mark the first time the Octagon has rolled through Indy since UFC 119 in 2010. The event, headlined by heavyweight Frank Mir‘s meeting with Mirko Filipovic, drew more than 15,000 fans.
