After an almost overwhelming 29 events in 2012, the UFC won’t be slowing down in the New Year.
With two events in January and the first PPV of the year in UFC 156 before it, UFC on Fuel 7 will be the fourth UFC event in under 30 days by the time the Octagon returns to England on February 16th. The overseas card has a chance to kick off the UFC’s Fuel lineup in a big way next year.
English UFC fans have had to deal with a lot of disappointments over the last few years, with the number of visits by the world’s premier MMA organization slowly declining along with the quality of fights. Unfortunately, the London fans are going to get another low-profile Fuel card for their first taste of UFC action next year.
While it’s unlikely that the Zuffa brass will throw any sort of high profile fight on the card, the UFC roster has a solid amount of talented English fighters they’ll be able to showcase early next year, and at the very least the fans at Wembley Arena will have a few natives to cheer on at UFC on Fuel 7.
