When is UFC London 2022? Date and card for July fight night at the O2 Arena

Another round of UFC action in London!

Comments

To paraphrase that saying about London buses, you wait ages for a UFC event in the English capital and then two pretty much come along at once.

That’s right, hot on the heels of March’s successful fight night at the O2 Arena, the leading MMA promotion is back for more this summer with Tom Aspinall and Paddy Pimblett confirmed to appear.

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

UFC bigwig Dana White was so impressed with the atmosphere at the O2 Arena that he immediately declared: “We’re coming back here this year. I don’t give a s**t what the schedule is. We’re gonna be moving s**t around when we get home!”

Fair play to the fella, he’s actually come good on his vow and the UFC is returning to London sooner than expected. But when is the fight night taking place? You’ll find all the key details below.

UFC London 2022 date

The UFC returns to London on Saturday, July 23 at the O2 Arena. The prelims are scheduled to get underway from 5pm before the main card begins at 8pm.
