The UFC is coming to Long Island.
On Friday morning, the promotion announced an upcoming summer event at the Nassau Coliseum. The event — which will be officially branded as UFC on FOX 25 — will take place on July 22.
It marks the third event in New York this year — after UFC 208 in Brooklyn and UFC 210 in Buffalo.
We ❤️ New York!!

While no bouts have been announced for the event, you have to imagine one name that will be featured on the card is former middleweight champion Chris Weidman, who faces off against Gegard Mousasi in Buffalo next month.
With a win — and likely even with a loss — we should expect to see Weidman in the headlining bout.
After all, he has previously said his dream venue was Nassau Coliseum.
We could also see a number of other Serra-Longo Fight Team members gracing the card, with the close proximity to the venue. Guys like Aljamain Sterling, Ryan LaFlare and Gian Villante could all be in play for the event.
