Ufc on Fuel 7 - London, Feb 16, 2013
The pencilled in Ufc on Fuel 7 has found a home in London, England, scheduled for February 16, 2013.
This will likely show live in the early hours for the North American crowd and taped delayed again throughout the day,
This is another sign of things to come, FX and Fuel shows for international shows outside of North America (the paying crowd)
I expect to see Dan Hardy headlining or co-headline
"An international city that was expected to host UFC on FUEL TV 7 is now confirmed as London.
MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) reported the English city as a likely host this past month, and MMAFighting.com today confirmed it.
The event, which takes place Feb. 16 at the 12,500-seat Wembley Arena, marks the promotion's return to London after after a two-year absence.
UFC on FUEL TV 7's main card airs live on FUEL TV while preliminary-card fights are expected to stream on Facebook.
The promotion's most recent trip to London came in October 2010 for UFC 120, which featured a middleweight headliner between U.K. star Michael Bisping and Yoshihiro Akiyama. The event, which aired live on Spike TV, reportedly set a company record for attendance in Europe with 17,133 fans, which generated a live gate of approximately $2.56 million.
No matchups have been confirmed for the February event, which is bound to ease the woes of U.K. fans who often say the UFC neglects the region.
UFC on FUEL TV 7 is the first U.K. event of the 2013 schedule. The promotion's most recent trip to the country came at UFC on FUEL TV 5, which took place in September at Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, England.
