UFC President Dana White confirmed today that the UFC has booked the Boston Garden for August 28th.
“I’m going to put on a show that’s going to blow the (expletive) roof off that place …. You know how much this means to me and how long I’ve wanted to come there and how much I love the city of Boston,” [BH]
White also rejected rumors that Brock Lesnar would be headlining the main event.
“I’m not targeting him for any fight right now. I don’t even know what the hell is going to happen to him. Right now, fighting is the least of his worries. This guy wants to live a normal, quality life. He’s not even thinking about fighting right now.”
The news comes just a month after Massachusetts signed a bill legalizing MMA.
