BY Damon Martin • July 1, 2015

Following a huge show in Ireland in 2014, the UFC announced on Wednesday that the promotion will return to the Emerald Isle on Saturday, Oct. 24 for the latest card in Dublin.

UFC officials announced the new card early Wednesday morning.

The show will take place at the 3Arena and will be a UFC Fight Night card, although no broadcast details were announced with the confirmation for the show.

"Ireland has been such an important market to the UFC and we couldn't let a year go by without delivering another spectacular event for the fans in the capital," said Joe Carr, vice president of international UFC. "We're looking forward to showcasing both local and international talent at the event and hopefully getting the decibel counter higher this year round."

The last card in Dublin, Ireland packed in over 9,500 fans with a $1.4 million gate as hometown favorite Conor McGregor took out 'Ultimate Fighter' winner Diego Brandao with a first round TKO.

The 3Arena, previously known as the O2 arena, is the same venue where the last UFC card was held in Dublin.

No fights were announced for the Oct. 24 card, but tickets will go on sale on Sept. 4 for fans looking to attend.
