Dana White announces UFC on Fox Sports 1 August show will be in Boston

New, comments

The UFC's first event on Fox Sports 1 will be in Boston, Massachusetts, marking the promotion's first trip there since 2010.

UFC president Dana White gave MMA fans in the Massachusetts area some great news today. The promotion will return to Boston for UFC on Fox Sports 1 on Saturday, August 17th, as confirmed by White on Twitter:

The last time the UFC went to the TD Garden was for UFC 118 in August 2010. Frankie Edgar dominated B.J. Penn to defend the lightweight title, while Randy Couture predictably beat James Toney in the co-main event. The obvious low-light was the incredibly bad Spike TV fight between Andre Winner and Nik Lentz.

While this FS1 card will air on a Saturday, the majority of the UFC's live shows on the new channel will air on Wednesdays.
