The UFC is set to return to the United Kingdom for the first time since 2019 with a stacked card this upcoming weekend. UFC London: Volkov vs. Aspinall will take place on March 19 at the O2 Arena in London, England.

Time to put the world on notice! ๐Ÿ˜คUFC LDN is back! ๐Ÿ”ฅ After three years away the Octagon returns to London and the Brits are ready to put on the show.#UFCLondon x @KojeyRadical

The much-awaited Fight Night event is set to be headlined by a heavyweight encounter between British knockout artist Tom Aspinall and former Bellator heavyweight champion Alexander Volkov.

Although the main event currently features Volkov, there is a chance that the Russian may not be allowed to compete at the event. This is due to the recent sanctions on Russian athletes implemented by the UK government. In that case, Aspinall will have to step into the cage with a replacement fighter whom the promotion is yet to officially announce.

In the co-headliner, Dan Hooker is set to be welcomed on his return to the featherweight division after six years by surging contender Arnold Allen.

Check out the pre-fight press conference and weigh-ins schedule for the event below:
