The “City of Brotherly Love” will not be so loving of brothers for at least one night in 2011. First reported by MMAfighting.com, the Ultimate Fighting Championship will return to Philadelphia for an event in August.
A source confirmed with the outlet that a show is in the works for the Wells Fargo Arena. This event may potentially be UFC 133. The UFC was last in Philadelphia two years ago for UFC 101 in an event that featured Anderson Silva dispatching Forrest Griffin with a rousing first round knockout and BJ Penn dominating Kenny Florian on his way to a fourth round submission victory.
August is shaping up to be a very busy month for the UFC. Already announced is the big event which will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on August 27. Along with this another potential event is scheduled to take place that month.
