Check out the current card for the UFC’s return to the United Kingdom.

After three long years, the UFC is finally taking the Octagon back to the United Kingdom. The promotion will be staging an oft-delayed show at the 02 Arena in London on Saturday, March 19th and the main card is pretty stacked for a regular Fight Night event.

The headliner will come in the heavyweight division, with title contender Alexander Volkov looking for his fourth win in five fights when he meets the surging Tom Aspinall. Aspinall is 4-0 in the UFC thus far with three performance bonuses, and will look to crack the top ten of the division with a victory here.

The co-main event will see the return of Paddy Pimblett, who will be looking for his second straight UFC win when he meets Rodrigo Vargas. The card also features an excellent featherweight matchup between the always game Dan Hooker and Arnold Allen, who is still undefeated in the UFC after eight fights.

Here’s a look at the full current card.
