According to UFCJunkie, UFC 77 will be held in Cincinnati Ohio at the U.S. Bank Arena on October 20. Headlining the card will be Rich Franklin, who will be getting his long awaited rematch against Anderson “The Spider” Silva in his hometown of Cincinnati. Also rumored to make his return to the cage is Tim “The Maniac” Silva, who must start his journey back to claim the heavyweight belt.
The stars aligned, and U.S. Bank Arena will now play host to UFC 77.
A source close to the arena told UFCjunkie.com that preparations have already begun for the show.
U.S. Bank Arena, located along the Ohio River, shares a plaza with the Cincinnati Reds’ Great American Ball Park and can accommodate approximately 17,000 spectators. A minor-league hockey game between the Cincinnati Cyclones and Dayton Bombers was reassigned to Dayton to make room for the UFC event on Oct. 20.
