UFC will host its annual show at The 02 in London, England on Mar. 21.

The promotion confirmed the event via press release on Friday morning.

Although there have been no fights confirmed for the event thus far, a number of U.K. charges could be eyeing up big fights at the 2020 event.

Coming off his middleweight debut win against Kelvin Gastelum, Darren Till is attempting to set up a meeting with Robert Whittaker, who has declared interest in fighting “The Gorilla” on U.K. soil. Welterweight frontrunner Leon Edwards is vying for a shot against former divisional champion Tyron Woodley – a fight that would be sure to impress fans in the region.

U.K. fighters Arnold Allen, Nathaniel Wood, Molly McCann, Marc Diakiese and Jack Shore boast significant win streaks that could result in a number of significant bouts being booked for the London marquee.

“The UK and Ireland is established as one of our flagship markets in Europe,” said UFC Senior Vice President David Shaw, according to the press release.

“We’re delighted to be returning to London, our fans are fantastic and have always shown up in their thousands to support their local heroes.”
