PostSubject: Report: UFC 72 to Take Place in Belfast, Ireland   Thu 12 Apr 2007, 3:07 pm



Ireland’s UFC 72 event, which is rumored to feature a headline fight of former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin vs. Martin Kampmann, will take place at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast, Ireland, on June 16, according to The Fight Network.

Sherdog.com reported last week the main-event fighters and the fact that the event would be held in Ireland, but UFC 72’s venue remained a mystery.

However, according to The Fight Network (citing sources in the UFC’s recently opened United Kingdom office), the event will take place in Ireland’s biggest indoor stadium, which is part of The Odyssey, a large sports and entertainment center situated in Queen’s Island, Belfast. The venue is home to the UK Elite League’s Belfast Giants ice hockey team and can accommodate more than 10,000 spectators.

The UFC will host its next event on April 21 in Manchester, England, at the M.E.N. Arena. It will be the UFC’s first show outside the U.S. since “UFC 38: Brawl in the Hall,” which was held in London in 2002.

The UFC recently opened its U.K. office with the accompanying announcement that the organization would explore an international roster of host cities, which could result in an event in Mexico (with Mexico City a likely option) that could be held as early as the end of this year.

Additionally, should the rumored deal between UFC and HBO continue to stall, UFC 72 could be shown on Spike TV on a tape-delay basis, similar to the setup for next weekend’s UFC 70 event, according to a recent Wrestling Observer report.

The report also states that a Forrest Griffin vs. Hector Ramirez bout could be added to the UFC 72 card.

The event will be the first ever held in Ireland.
