After nearly four years, UFC is returning at Orlando, Florida and now the local MMA fans are excited about the new development.
There haven’t been any UFC fights in Orlando in four years. The fights have yet to be announced, but there have been rumors about some potential fights. There is no official headliner for the card, but there is talk of a fight between Matt Schnell and Matheus Nicolau and more.
In 2014, the UFC made its debut in Orlando, drawing a sellout crowd of 17,000 at Amway Center, the company’s second-largest U.S. crowd of the year. After the success, Dana White stated, “Orlando is a home run; we will definitely return to Orlando.” Since then there wasn’t any major activity in Orlando following that statement.
However, the last time Orlando hosted was in 2018, and the main event was a fight between Josh Emmett and Jeremy Stephens. Jéssica Andrade, Tecia Torres, Sam Alvey, and Brian Kelleher were among the familiar faces.
