UFC heading back to Pittsburgh on February 21

UFC officials have announced that the promotion will return to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for the first time in five years on Sunday, February 21, 2016. The event will take place at the Consol Energy Center and air LIVE on FOX Sports 1. North Carolina native middleweight Derek Brunson announced on his Instagram account that he will be fighting Roan Caneiro at the event in a middleweight bout. However, UFC officials have not officially announced the bout at this time.

The last time the UFC visited Pittsburgh, UFC heavyweights Pat Barry and Cheick Kongo headlined the event. That bout was memorable in that Barry had Kongo knocked out on his feet before rushing in to get clipped by a punch that turned his lights out. You can watch the footage below:
