The UFC announced Friday plans to host their first event in Long Island, New York July 22.

The Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, previously the home of the NHL’s New York Islanders for 43 years and recently renovated to the tune of $165 million USD, will be the place for UFC on FOX 25, a free FOX-televised card.

Bouts are expected to be announced, but tickets go on sale June 2.
