The Ultimate Fighting Championship organisation returns to London on Saturday February 16, 2013 at Wembley Arena with tickets on sale from Wednesday December 5.

UFC's return to the capital is anticipated to be another sell-out and with the event taking place at the iconic Wembley Arena, which has hosted the London 2012 Olympic Games and major international recording acts, the UFC at Wembley will continue the great sporting tradition of the arena.

"While we are working on finalising the fight card, UFC and fight fans can rest assured that we will bring another compelling card," commented UFC's executive vice-president and managing director of EMEA, Garry Cook. "You can bet that with us returning to London we will bring top fighters from the UK and around the world.

"There is always a high demand for UFC events and based on our last success in London, where we sold-out UFC 120: Bisping v Akiyama, I have no doubt this will be another big success."

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday December 5 at 10.30am for Fight Club Members only, on Thursday December 6 at 10.30am for newsletter members, and to the general public on Friday December 7 at 10.30am. The ticket pricing is £50, £75, £100, £150 and £200 and they are available at www.ticketmaster.co.uk and www.ufc.com.
