UFC returns to Indianapolis for Fox Sports 1 show on August 28th

The UFC is returning to Indiana for the first time since 2010, this time for a Fox Sports 1 event on August 28th.

Two days after Fox Sports confirmed they will be airing a live UFC event on Wednesday, August 28th on their new sports channel, we now know the venue. Last night during the New York Knicks/Indiana Pacers NBA playoff game, Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis announced they will host the card:

The last time the UFC went to Indy was for UFC 119 on September 25th, 2010. On the preliminary card, Sean McCorkle submitted Mark Hunt, Matt Mitrione defeated Joey Beltran, and C.B Dollaway pulled off a slick guillotine choke on Joe Doerksen. The main card ... definitely happened. Sean Sherk controversially beat Evan Dunham and hasn't fought since then. Frank Mir, who recorded the only knockout of the entire show, didn't even get a KOTN bonus for his win against Mirko Cro Cop in the main event. Mir knocked out Cro Cop with a knee with 56 seconds left in the fight, putting it in the Gabriel Gonzaga/Kevin Jordan category of a bad heavyweight fight ending with a violent KO.

Last year the UFC attempted an FX show for September, but canceled the booking and went to Minneapolis instead later that October.

This year's Indianapolis show will kick off a one week stretch of three live UFC cards. After the Aug. 28th show, the UFC will go to Milwaukee, WI for UFC 164 on August 31st, and then (reportedly) will head to Brasilia, Brazil for another FS1 show on September 4th.
