The UFC will return to Manila and the Philippines this October.
A “Fight Night” card will be held October 15 from the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, Manila.
“We are very excited to be back in the Philippines,” UFC executive vice president and general manager of UFC Asia Kenneth Berger said in a press release. “The consistently warm reception we receive from Filipino fans and last year’s sold out event shows us that UFC has an incredibly strong following in the country.
“Manila is a fighting city and we hope to put on another unforgettable show that will capture the hearts of Filipino sports fans throughout the country.”
Last year, UFC Fight Night 66 took place in the country, with Frankie Edgar besting Urijah Faber in the main event. That card streamed live on UFC Fight Pass.
