The Octagon is headed back to London for the first time since 2010.

UFC officials today confirmed that the previously announced UFC on Fuel TV 7 will take place Feb. 16 at London’s Wembley Arena. An on-sale date for tickets will be announced soon.

No matchups have been revealed for the card, which will mark the company’s first trip across the pond in 2013. The show’s preliminary bouts are expected to stream on Facebook, with the main card airing live on Fuel TV.

London has played host to five previous UFC events, including four successful installments at the state-of-the-art O2 Arena. February’s card will be the UFC’s first at Wembley, a near-80-year-old venue which has hosted everything from Olympic badminton to British fighting organization BAMMA. The UFC last touched down on British soil in September, when UFC on Fuel TV 5 took place at Capital FM Arena in Nottingham.
