© Jason Silva / USA TODAY The UFC will return to New Zealand for the first time in three years with a Fight Night at Auckland's Vector Arena on June 10, the promotion announced Saturday.

No bouts have been attached to the card as of yet.

The last Octagon sighting in New Zealand came in June 2014 with UFC Fight Night 43, where Nate Marquardt submitted native son James Te Huna in the first round of the middleweight main event, and Jared Rosholt took a unanimous decision over Soa Palelei in the heavyweight co-main event.
