UFC Possibly Heading to Australia in February 2010

The UFC is looking to continue its global expansion by going to Australia as early as February of 2010.

Fighters Only magazine has a report up on its website that goes into detail about the UFC’s intentions for the land down under.

Dana White has been very vocal about expanding into other markets and according to Australian sources the UFC is looking at the Acer Arena and has already contacted them about booking a show there in early 2010.

The former Sydney Superdome holds up to 21,000 people and is a popular attraction for concerts and has even played host to the Australian MTV Music Awards.

The UFC normally likes to load cards up with local talent but at this time there is only one fighter of Australian descent on their roster and that is George Sotiropoulos. Elvis Sinosic and Brad Morris are two other fighters who hail from Australia who have fought for the UFC.
