The UFC will return to the U.K. for the second straight October this year, as Dave Meltzer at WrestlingObserver.com reports that the organization has booked two possible venues for an October 15 event.

Per the report, venues in Nottingham and Liverpool have been tapped for the event, and Nottingham could be the leading candidate should Dan Hardy be available for the card, as that is his hometown.

Unless they book another event in the U.K. prior to the October date, it would be the UFC's first event there since last October's UFC 120 in London, England. This would mark the UFC's first-ever event in either city, as they have previously run in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Newcastle.

Though their returns to the United Kingdom have gotten fewer and farther between, UFC executive Marshall Zelaznik has promised a more frequent return across the pond in the near future.
