UFC will make its annual stop in London on March 16, 2019.

St Patrick’s Day weekend has become the regular slot for the promotion’s visits to the English capital, and per a UFC press release, 2019 will be no different. As usual, the event will take place at The 02.

Although there has yet to be any fights announced for the date U.K. fighters Jimi Manuwa and Danny Roberts were quoted in the press release announcing the date.

“There’s nothing like the London fans, especially for me as it’s my home town. Walking out to a packed O2 arena, looking at the crowd and seeing so many familiar faces is a dream in itself,” said Manuwa, per the release.

“I have had some of my best career highlights in London, and I know that every time I perform there, I will be adding another one to the list,” said Roberts. “MMA fans are some of the best sporting fans in the world, and London is that one city that I know they will show me that.”

This will be the 11th live event the UFC has hosted in London. Tickets will go on general sale Friday, Feb. 1, via AXS and Ticketmaster.
