    The UFC is returning to Halifax in February with a televised Fight Night event at the Scotiabank Centre.

    There is no word yet on the makeup of the Feb. 19 card.

    The UFC's next Canadian show is UFC 206 on Dec. 10, marking a return to Toronto after an absence of more than three years.

    The first card in Halifax, in October 2014, saw Canadian welterweight Rory MacDonald stop former Strikeforce champion Tarec Saffiedine by TKO in the third round of the main event. MacDonald has since signed with the rival Bellator fight promotion.

    The UFC's first visit to Atlantic Canada drew a loud crowd of 10,782 at the Scotiabank Centre. Canadian fighters won seven of their nine bouts on the televised Fight Night card.

    "We're thrilled to bring the Octagon back to Halifax after our successful debut there in 2014," said Joe Carr, UFC senior vice-president, international. "Canada remains a priority market for UFC, and we will continue to showcase top talent and deliver for our Canadian fans like at UFC 206 in Toronto this December."

    its kind of Ironic...my daughter was born a month before the first one in 2014, now my second child will be born about a month before this second one. I went to the first one...will go to the second one.
