The UFC’s planned September return to the Midwest for a show in Indianapolis has been scrapped.
Sources close to the event on Tuesday confirmed to MMAjunkie.com that UFC on FX 5, which was set for Sept. 7 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, will not happen as planned. UFC officials were not immediately available to comment on the reason for the change.
Instead, UFC on FX 5 is expected to take place, sources said, on Oct. 5. A location and venue for the card is not yet known, but the UFC is soon expected to make an official announcement about the change. Additional sources said the show will not remain in Indianapolis.
UFC on FX 5 would have been the promotion’s second event at the 19,000-seat arena, which was known as Conseco Fieldhouse the first time the UFC visited the Indiana state capital for UFC 119 in September 2010.
