The UFC has announced that they will be returning to Germany. This will mark the third time the UFC has held an event in the country. The fight card will be in Berlin, on May 31. This date is interesting since they also have an event scheduled in Brazil (Sonnen vs Silva) on May 31. Two fight cards on the same day in two different countries, wow.
The UFC has also confirmed that they will be holding an event in Dublin, Ireland on July 19. This will be the second event in Ireland. The UFC is also looking into holding an event in Scotland in 2015.
Garry Cook on @talkSPORT: “The UFC is going to Dublin on July 19th and exploring Glasgow in 2015!”
