The UFC is coming back to Newark.

Officials announced Thursday that there will be a UFC show at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on Aug. 3. This will be the promotion’s eighth visit to the venue.

No bouts have been announced.

The UFC’s last trip to Newark occurred on Jan. 30, 2016, for a UFC on FOX show that saw Anthony Johnson defeat Ryan Bader by first-round KO in the main event.

Other notable main events to take place at the Prudential Center include Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen (UFC 159), Jones vs. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua (UFC 128), and Georges St-Pierre vs. Dan Hardy (UFC 111).

Tickets for the event will go on sale June 28. The main card is currently scheduled to air live on ESPN.
