UFC returning to Indianapolis as part of Fox Sports 1 relaunch

As our Dave Meltzer reported on MMA Fighting today, the UFC will be returning to Indianapolis on Wednesday, August 28th. The Bankers Life Fieldhouse show will be the first of the regular Wednesday night series on Fox Sports 1.

This is the UFC's first show in the city since UFC 119 in September 2010, a relatively forgettable event headlined by Frank Mir. vs. Mirko Cro Cop. Tickets for the event go on sale June 14th.

The UFC's first event on the upstart sports network will be Saturday, August 17 in Boston, MA, the official debut of Fox Sports 1.
