It looks like the UFC has changed its mind, UFC 83 from Manchester, England will now take place March 8 in the United States, according to a recent article on Brawl Sports.
a source I spoke with confirmed that the U.K. event has been cancelled, no specific were provided as to why. However, the show will go on, only here in the states.
UFC 83 has been criticised for being only one week after the UFC 82, saturating fans with UFC PPV’s. If both UFC 82 and UFC 83 are on pay-per-view, fans will be forced to shell out $80 in PPV fees in one month.
The best case scenario would be if the UFC decides to broadcast UFC 83 free on SpikeTV.
