UFC 103 Likely for September 26 in Dallas, Texas

American Airlines CenterUFC 103, long rumored to take place in the UK, is now expected to be held on September 26th at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

The likely venue was recently confirmed by MMAjunkie with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation’s Combative Sports.

The American Airlines Center, home to the NHL’s Dallas Stars and the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, can hold more than 21,000 spectators.

A main event has not yet been confirmed for UFC 103, though a fight between The Ultimate Fighter 10 coaches Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans could headline the card if the UFC opts to have it take place before the finale of the season in December.

The UFC’s only previous event in “The Lonestar State”, UFC 69: Shootout, was headlined by Matt Serra’s shocking upset of welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and drew 15,269 fans to the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas for a $2.8 million live gate.
