According to the Chicago Sun-times, UFC 90 is set to take place on October 25 from the All-State arena in Chicago, IL. The event is scheduled to take place just one week after the SpikeTV broadcast UFC 89 “Bisping vs. Leben” on October 19th from the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, England.
UFC 90 tickets go on sale to the general public on August 9th.
UFC President Dana White:
”Chicago is a huge market for us….There are tons of fans in Chicago and around Chicago, and it’s going to be one of the places we hit often. It’s a great fight town, and we’re really pumped that we’re finally getting this done.”
“We only go to places with strong athletic commissions….We’ll never go to a place where [MMA] isn’t legal yet….But you know every time we go to a new place, we deliver. We’re going to bring a big-time fight.”
