The Ultimate Fighting Championship will continue to expand into the New York area this summer.

The promotion announced on Friday that UFC on Fox 25 will take place at NYCB Live, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, in Long Island. No bouts were revealed for the event, which will mark the fourth card held by the UFC in New York. The main card will be televised on Fox.

After mixed martial arts was legalized in New York, the Las Vegas-based organization debuted in the state with UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 12. That card saw Conor McGregor claim lightweight gold with a second-round stoppage of Eddie Alvarez in the evening’s main event.

Earlier this year, UFC 208 took place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Feb. 11, when Germaine de Randamie took a unanimous decision over Holly Holm to win the inaugural women’s featherweight title. Next Saturday, UFC 210 will go down at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo with a bill topped by a light heavyweight championship rematch between Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson (Vegas odds).
