“We’re so close. It’s going to happen, and I guarantee you it’s going to happen this year. It’s going to depend on when it happens, timing and everything else, but obviously, it would be nice to go in there with, probably, Jon Jones.”

According to UFC president Dana White’s most recent interview with ESPN Radio, he believes it is.
He believes that this is the year that the UFC will be in New York.

It’s bound to happen, but only time will tell if it will actually be this year.
