    Default UFC books events for Dublin, Ireland / Stockholm, Sweden / Istanbul, Turkey

    UFC books events for Dublin, Ireland on July 19, Stockholm, Sweden on Oct. 4 and Istanbul, Turkey on Nov. 22

    Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) continued to unveil more of its international expansion, recently announcing its return to Dublin, Ireland, for a mid-summer mixed martial arts (MMA) event on July 19, 2014. While no names have been attached to this upcoming card, I would expect to see hometown hero Conor McGregor in the discussion.

    "Notorious" should be all patched up by then.

    UFC hasn't been to Dublin since UFC 93, when Dan Henderson squeaked by Rich Franklin in the headlining act in a show that took place inside the O2 Arena on Jan. 17, 2009. "Shogun" Rua pounded out Mark Coleman in their co main event rematch.

    That's not all.

    A report from our friends at Kimura.se brings word from UFC international head cheese Garry Cook that ZUFFA will return to Stockholm, Sweden, on Oct. 4, 2014. What a great place to have Alexander Gustafsson rematch Jon Jones, assuming both fighters get through their next opponents.

    Unfortunately, the chances of that happening are slim, as that kind of fight would undoubtedly headline a stateside pay-per-view (PPV).

    The European tour is expected to conclude with a stop in Istanbul on Nov. 22, 2014, marking the first time UFC and its band of merry men will hold a combat sports event in Turkey, a frequent stop for GLORY kickboxing and its stand-up fighters.

    Not sure what is up there...

    UFC heads to Sweden in October, Turkey in November
    After the announcements earlier today of shows in Germany in May and Ireland in July, the UFC will head to Sweden in October and Turkey in November.

    A source with knowledge of the dates and locations confirmed them to MMAjunkie. The source asked to remain anonymous because he was not yet authorized to speak publicly on the new events. The news was first reported, however, by Fighters Only, citing Garry Cook, the UFC’s executive vice president and managing director of UFC Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

    Cook revealed the dates and locations just two days ahead of the UFC’s first of six EMEA region cards planned for the year. UFC Fight Night 37 takes place Saturday in London. Next month, the promotion returns to Abu Dhabi on April 11.

    Earlier today, a May 31 show in Berlin was announced – for the same day as one in Brazil – as was an event in Dublin on July 19.

    The six-event EMEA year will wrap up in Stockholm on Oct. 4 and Istanbul on Nov. 22.
