The UFC will, as expected, touch down in Orlando, Florida this December.

On Thursday, promotion officials announced that the Amway Center in Orlando, FL would play host to a UFC Fight Night event on December 3, 2022. News of the date had previously been reported by multiple outlets including Cageside Press.x

Tickets for the show are expected to go on sale on October 14.

The event will mark the first time the promotion has been in Orlando since a February 24, 2018 card featuring Jeremy Stephens and Josh Emmett in the main event. That show also took place at the Amway Center.
