There has been much speculation and numerous rumours that the UFC would be heading to Manchester England with Bisping a headline event in the latter quarter of 2009, with a November date being thrown around as the most likely.

However  Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kier confirmed on US MMA forum The Underground that the UFC has formally requested a Nov. 21 event date at the Mandalay Bay Events Centre in Las Vegas for UFC 105.

MEN

It now appears that there is some substance t both these rumours.  MMA Junkie are reporting that multiple sources have told them that the Vegas event, UFC 106, will likely follow a Nov 14 UFC 105 event which is expected to take place in the U.K. ,possibly at the site of their first foray into the UK at the MEN Arena in Manchester.

No fights are set for either card, though UFC 105 will likely be heavy on UK and mainland European talent and it doesn’t stretch the imagination too much to expect Bisping to headline in his home city, with additional inclusions of “TUF 9” winners Ross Pearson and James Wilks.

With the UFC partnership with Setanta now ended it still remains to be seen how UK and European fans will be able to view the UK event.

The latest 2009 schedule (subject to change) for the UFC now includes:

  • UFC 100 on July 11 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas
  • UFC 101 on Aug. 8 at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia
  • UFC 102 on Aug. 29 at the Rose Garden in Portland, Ore.
  • UFC Fight Night 19 on Sept. 16 at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City
  • UFC 103 on Sept. 19 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas
  • UFC 104 on Oct. 24 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles
  • UFC 105 on Nov. 14 in the U.K. MEN Arena
  • UFC 106 on Nov. 21 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas
  • The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale on Dec. 5 at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas
