UFC 286
UFC RETURNS TO THE O2 FOR UFC 286® IN 2023

Event Description

UFC today announced its return to London for its second-ever UK numbered event. The world’s premier martial arts organisation will bring action-packed entertainment to The O2 on Saturday 18 March 2023.

In 2022, British fans experienced mixed martial arts reaching new heights, with UFC hosting two sell-out events at The O2. The events featured Tom Aspinall, who secured the biggest win of his career against Alexander Volkov, Molly McCann shooting to stardom with her impressive knockout power and fan favourite Paddy Pimblett becoming a household name with back-to-back submissions.

Across the pond, British spectators saw Leon Edwards become the second-ever British UFC champion as he faced reigning UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, at UFC® 278. Edwards put on a performance of a lifetime to beat Usman by knockout in the fifth round and become UFC welterweight champion.

UFC President, Dana White said “Everyone knows how much I love our fans in the UK. We had two incredible shows in London in 2022, and this time we’re bringing a world title fight with the biggest and baddest card we could put together at The O2 on March 18. The UK MMA scene is exploding with talent right now and I can’t wait to show you guys what we have in store for you next year.”
