UFC hits 10 show milestone at The O2

UFC returned to The O2 on Saturday 19 March 2022 for their tenth event at the venue, as Tom Aspinall triumphed over Alexander Volkov. To mark this monumental milestone, the venue presented UFC with a special award.

The event, which saw the highest attendance for a UFC fight night in London, also featured victories from ‘Meatball’ Molly McCann and rising star Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett.

UFC was also added to The O2’s ‘Promoter Wall of Fame’, which features promoters who have put on the most shows at the venue.

Speaking at the post fight press conference, Dana White (UFC President) said:This was the biggest Fight Night of all time. It seriously could not have gone any better. Saturday night’s fights reenergized and reminded us all what it’s like to do fights over in the UK.”

Alex Hill (President & CEO at AEG Europe) commented: “It was incredible to welcome UFC back to The O2 for a fantastic fight night. We’re incredibly proud to have hosted ten UFC events at the venue, each with a totally unique but equally exciting atmosphere. Here’s to the next ten for UFC at The O2.”
