LAS VEGAS — The UFC has a doubleheader and a few big returns before 2016 is up.

UFC 206 will be on Dec. 10 in Toronto, it was announced as part of the full schedule for the rest of the year by UFC vice president of public relations Dave Sholler on Friday. The promotion has not been to the Canadian city since UFC 165: Jones vs. Gustafsson in 2013.

For the first time since 2007, the UFC will be heading to Northern Ireland for a Fight Night card in Belfast on Nov. 19. That same day, there will be a card airing from Brazil — a UFC doubleheader. A week later, a Fight Night card will be held in Melbourne, Australia on Nov. 26. November is a big month with UFC 205 marking the UFC's debut in New York on Nov. 12.

In December, the Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale will be in Las Vegas on Dec. 3. That card will feature Demetrious Johnson defending his flyweight title against the TUF winner.

One day before UFC 206, there will be a Fight Night card held in Albany on Dec. 9. A week later, UFC on FOX 22 is set for Sacramento, the UFC's return there for the first time since UFC 177: Dillashaw vs. Soto in August 2014. That event will be at the brand new Golden 1 Center in Sacramento.

The year will be capped off by the promotion's usual New Year's weekend card. UFC 207 is set for Dec. 30 in Las Vegas.
