The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will come to Buffalo in April.

The KeyBank Center tweeted the announcement Sunday night.

UFC 210 will take place at the KeyBank Center on April 8, 2017.  It will also air live on Pay-Per-View.

Fight card and ticketing information have not yet been released.

This will be the third UFC event in New York State since lawmakers passed the Mixed Martial Arts bill last April.

This will be the first time the UFC comes to Buffalo in more than 20 years.

The last event took place in September 1995, when UFC 7 took place at the Memorial Auditorium.  The main event featured future Hall of Fame fighter Ken Shamrock against Oleg Taktarov.
