January’s UFC 220 Pay-Per-View Card Lands in Boston
Since the legalization of MMA in New York state, Boston, Massachusetts hasn’t seen a UFC event. On Monday afternoon however, Dana White informed ESPN’s Brett Okamoto that this was going to change. White, a New England native, broke the news that the world’s largest mixed martial arts promotion would be rolling into “Beantown” on January 20th, 2018 for its first pay-per-view of the new year.
This will be the fifth UFC event held at the TD Garden, but only its second pay-per-view. The last pay-per-view to grace the hub of New England was way back in the summer of 2010– UFC 118. There have been no fights formally announced at this time, however BJPenn.com reported earlier this month that Justine Kish vs. Ji Yeon Kim was in the works for a UFC event on that date.
It is also to be noted that UFC Lightweight Champion, Conor McGregor has named Boston as one of the few locations that he is open to fighting in. On the cusps of a title unification with the current Interim UFC Lightweight Champion Tony Ferguson, it is quite possible that this bout will land in the “Little Ireland” of the United States.
