FOX Sports 1 LogoOver the past few weeks, FOX executives announced the company was launching the FOX Sports Network in late summer with a live UFC event included in the festivities and UFC President Dana White teased that the organization would be heading back to Boston “sooner than people think”. As it turns out, both bits of news were actually attached at the hip, as White recently announced UFC on FSN 1 is scheduled to take place on August 17 in the fight-friendly city.

“We are bringing a SICK card,” White assured fans in a Tweet revealing the good news.

The card will mark the Octagon’s return to Boston after nearly a three-year absence from Bean Town. No match-ups have been rumored for the lineup though it seems safe to assume a title-fight will likely serve as the show’s main event.
