UFC officialsÂ haveÂ confirmedÂ the promotion'sÂ highly-anticipated return to Dublin, Ireland forÂ Saturday October 24th at the 3Arena. No fights have been confirmed for the card.

Joe Carr, vice president of international development for UFC,Â said:Â "Ireland has been such an important market to the UFC and we couldnâ€™t let a year go by without delivering another spectacular event for the fans in the capital. Weâ€™re looking forward to showcasing both local and international talent at the event and hopefully getting the decibel counter higher this year round."
