SSE Hydro will host three bouts with home favourite – Coatbridge's Paul Craig – the star attraction
The event is a homecoming of sorts for Coatbridge's Paul Craig, who will face-off against the star of UFC's long-standing reality TV series 'The Ultimate Fighter' Khalil Rountree, in a light-heavyweight clash that's sure to excite fight fans across Scotland.
Craig is thrilled to be stepping out in front of a home crowd and can't wait to fight in front of a packed Hydro. He added: 'I have never fought in my home country as a professional so to be added to the card in Glasgow, 10 minutes away from my home is incredible. Hearing the Scottish fans cheering for me as I walk out into the arena on Jul 16 will be spectacular.'
Elsewhere Welshman Jack Marshman takes on Canadian Ryan James, and heavyweight Mark Godbeer collides with Justin Willis. UFC's Senior Vice President, Joe Carr said it would be another 'unforgettable' event.
'When we announced our return to Glasgow just a few weeks' back, the reaction from fans was phenomenal,' he continued. 'Our July 2015 event sold out in a matter of minutes and, if the fans' response this time around is anything to go by, we can expect a similar reaction when tickets are released on June 2nd.'
Sign up for presale tickets, general tickets will be announced at a later date.
