UFC Plans Return Trip to Philippines on Oct. 15

By Brian Knapp Jul 25, 2016
The Ultimate Fighting Championship will touch down in the Philippines for the second time in its history on Oct. 15.

No bouts have been announced for the UFC Fight Night event, which will be held at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, Philippines. The venue, which seats 15,000, was the site for the first UFC show in the island nation on May 15, 2015. That card was headlined by a featherweight clash that saw Frankie Edgar defeat Team Alpha Male patriarch Urijah Faber by unanimous decision before a reported crowd of 13,446. In the co-main event, former Dream and Strikeforce champion Gegard Mousasi walked away with a unanimous verdict over Costas Philippou.

UFC Fight Night “Edgar vs. Faber” was also witness to the retirement of 2001 NCAA wrestling champion Mark Munoz, the son of Filipino parents. Munoz exited the Octagon for the final time following his unanimous decision victory over Luke Barnatt.
