UFC is heading back to Paris this fall, which means the the crowd decibel levels will likely be off the charts once again.

On Tuesday, the promotion announced that an event will take place Sept. 28 at Accor Arena, which serves as host for a UFC card for the third consecutive year. No bouts for the event were announced.

Tickets go on sale July 5 at 10 a.m. local time, while UFC Fight Club members will have the option to purchase tickets ahead of the public rush two days prior.

Former UFC interim heavyweight champion Ciryl Gane competed in the main event of both previous UFC Paris events, picking up stoppage wins in both.

In the promotion’s first trip to Paris in September 2022, Gane stopped Tai Tuivasa in an absolute slugfest. The win earned Gane a shot at the vacant heavyweight title, where he was submitted by Jon Jones at UFC 285 in March 2023. “Bon Gamin” returned to fight in front of his home crowd this past September and picked up a second-round TKO win over Serghei Spivac.
