The UFC is making its way back to Boston, announced UFC president Dana White.
We are FINALLY going back to Boston at the TD Garden on Aug 17th for the launch of FOX Sports 1!! We are bringing a SICK card :)— Dana White (@danawhite) March 29, 2013
The last UFC card in Boston was 118, in August 2010, which featured Massachusetts native Kenny Florian.
At least one prominent Bostonian -- or soon-to-be Bostonian -- was happy about the announcement.
