The Ultimate Fighting Championship will have a pay-per-view fight card, UFC 208, at Honda Center on Jan. 21, President Dana White announced Wednesday.

“We’re excited to bring another big UFC event to the Honda Center,” White said in a statement.

“Southern California has always been a great market for the UFC and we can’t wait to be back. We’re building an awesome card for the fans there.”

UFC 209 will be at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Feb. 11, and UFC 210 is set for March 4 in Las Vegas, though no site has been selected.
