The September 4 UFC event that was originally scheduled to take place in London is reportedly moving back to Las Vegas.
Sin City has been home to the majority of UFC cards since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic but after more than 16 months away, the promotion had been hoping to make a long-awaited return to London – a city they tend to visit every single year.
It seemed as if the September 4 show, headlined by Darren Till vs Derek Brunson, would be taking place there – but that no longer appears to be the case.

The middleweight clash has been in the works for a few months now with many believing it could give us a real indication of who Israel Adesanya’s next title challenger may be after Robert Whittaker.
The UFC has held events outside of the United States across the last year thanks to its association with Abu Dhabi and Fight Island, but European fans will have to keep on waiting.
