Brett Okamoto of ESPN broke the news of the event coming to Boston, which will be the fifth one in the city since 2010 when the promotion made its debut in the state for UFC 118.  While no fights have been listed for the card currently, UFC Lightweight champion Conor McGregor has expressed his interest in fighting in Boston in the past, and has done so twice in his career.  White has already hinted at the possibility of a title unification match between McGregor and interim champion Tony Ferguson that is rumored to be at UFC 219 in December, but could be pushed back to the Boston card.

UFC 217 will be this weekend from New York City and will feature three title fights as part of the fight listing.
