UFC planning to hold event in Dublin this May

Petesy Carroll of MMAFighting and Talking Brawls is reporting this evening that multiple sources have confirmed to MMAFighting that the UFC will hold an event in Ireland on Sunday 27th May 2018.

The promotion will return to Dublin’s 3Arena for what is expected to be a Fight Night card.

The previous UFC Dublin event took place in October 2015 but the event was hampered by injuries and the scheduled main event of Joseph Duffy vs Dustin Poirier was pulled during fight week after Duffy suffered a concussion during his preparations for the bout causing Paddy Holohan against Louis Smolka to be promoted to the main event.
