UFC 93 will take place at the O2 Arena in Dublin, Ireland on January 17th, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports.
The long-anticipated showdown between former welterweight champions Matt Serra and Matt Hughes will reportedly take place at the January event and Rich Franklin vs. Dan Henderson may also be added to the fight card, according to MMAJunkie.com.
Chuck Liddell and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua may also appear on the card, though whether they will square off in a featured light heavyweight matchup is not yet known.
UFC 93 will take place on the same day as Affliction’s next event, “Day of Reckoning”, and could ultimately air for free on Spike TV on tape-delay opposite of Affliction’s pay-per-view broadcast.
A January 31st event headlined by Georges St-Pierre vs. BJ Penn will be tentatively-titled UFC 94.
Both UFC 93 and UFC 94 are expected to be officially announced soon.
