February 28, 2015 was supposed to mark the return to London, for the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
UFC Chief Executive, Gary Cook explains why that date isn’t happening:
“We’re going to move ourselves to another London date further down in the year. So we had to make some changes, and as we always say with our business, it is subject to change, that’s just making sure the fans are taken care of, we don’t want to overdo it and make sure we get focused on that L.A. event at UFC 184 in Los Angeles. It’s very important for Alexander Gustafsson, we wanted to place that one into that market, and we also have the LA show with Ronda on that card and with Belfort and Weidman on that card, and so to make some adjustments, we’re going to take ourselves out of that London date, and we’re going to move ourselves to another London date further down in the year.”
