UFC looks to return sooner rather than later!

That’s according to UFC CEO Dana White, who hinted that British interim heavyweight champion Tom Aspinall and welterweight champion Leon Edwards will fight on the card.

“I have an English heavyweight champion and lots of other European stars. Two champs now out of England,” White told TNT Sports.

“That’s another thing that was happening just recently, so we have these teams that build all their different pieces to the puzzle. Then we come together with me and I start trying to fit the pieces of the puzzle together and I’m like this doesn’t fit here, that’s got to go. That’s how it all works.”

Dana White claimed that the promotion will announce the card in a few days.

“So we’re going to England. We’re coming and I got great fights lined up for the U.K. fans and I’m excited to get back there,” White said. “We’re right there working on stuff. We’ve got some badass plans for England. [It will be a] numbered card, pay-per-view. A great one.”
