The UFC’s partnership with Fox is taking them back to Boston.
UFC President Dana White announced on Friday that his company will host a card on the broadcast partner’s new channel, Fox Sports 1, on Aug. 17.
“We are finally going back to Boston at the TD Garden on Aug. 17 for the launch of FOX Sports 1,” White posted on Twitter.
No fights have been announced for the card, but White added that UFC fans can expect something many will enjoy.
“We are bringing a sick card,” he exclaimed.
The UFC last visited Boston for UFC 118 in August 2010, a card that featured then-lightweight champion Frankie Edgar winning a rematch with B.J. Penn, as well Randy Couture making quick work of former boxing champion James Toney.
The TD Garden is a 19,600-seat arena, according to the venue’s website, and hosts the NBA’s Boston Celtics and NHL’s Boston Bruins.
