The Ultimate Fighting Championship will travel to “The City of Brotherly Love” for the first time in more than seven years on March 30.
The Las Vegas-based promotion debuted in Philadelphia with UFC 101 on Aug. 8, 2009. That card saw B.J. Penn retain his lightweight belt with a fourth-round submission of Kenny Florian in the evening’s main event, while Anderson Silva scored a first-round knockout against Forrest Griffin in the co-headliner.
The organization’s only other trip to Philadelphia occurred two years later at UFC 133, which featured a main event pitting Rashad Evans against Tito Ortiz. Evans defeated Ortiz by second-round TKO in their rematch.
