    I've had some great weekends away watching ufc in the past couple of years - Manchester, Liverpool, Hamburg, Gdansk - and looking forward to arranging the next one.

    Anybody got any ideas/rumours about upcoming European events?

    Europe always gets the worst cards. No A-list fighters ever fight there..

    Fair point but there have been some decent 'sleeper' cards abd it's a great excuse to explore Europe!

    I think it's time for some A level events in Europe. The market is big enough imo. The problem would be the timezones I guess.

    I guess the brutal truth is that they don't need to stack the cards here as (particularly in the UK & Ireland) we pack the venues anyway.

    Yea, I still can't believe we got Oleynik vs Hunt as a main event for the first ever card in Russia... especially considering that Calgary got Poirier, Aldo and Alvarez like a month prior.

    They could do an A event anywhere in Europe. We Europeans are used to travel within Europe for festivals football etc

    Just make it worth it! 3 solid fights of serious contenders at least!

    It will probably be in Sweden or Germany. It would be cool to see the UFC in France one day.

    Sadly, the sport remains illegal in France. Shame as there are so many great cities to visit there.

    Anderson Silva fought Michael Bisping in UK.

    Alex Gustafsson vs Anthony Johnson, Ryan Bader vs Phil Davis, Mousasi vs Henderson all on one card in Sweden. Also Taisumov, Bektic, Krylov, Tumenov on that card. Real solid event.
