On Monday the Ultimate Fighting Championship announced that UFC 215 is held on September 9 at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The show is the first gala held in the city. In addition, it is the second promotion in the country this year. Fight Night 105 Lewis vs Browne was held at Scotiabank Centre in Halifax in February.
The event was originally expected to be UFC 216. However following the cancellation of a PPV installment on August 19, UFC 215 is happening instead. The main card airs on Pay-Per-View. The preliminary program is expected on Fox Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
