Default Philippines UFC Event Likely For Summer 2009

Philippines UFC Event Likely For Summer 2009

The UFC will likely hold an event in the Philippines in the summer of 2009, according to UFC.com:

A show in the Philippines, the home of boxing superstar and national icon Manny Pacquiao, is a no-brainer for the diehard fight fans of the nation, whom Fertitta describes as having “a deep understanding of the sport.” Summer of 2009 is being projected for the UFC’s initial foray into Southeast Asia, with the plan not only to showcase the company’s established stars, but to also give the event a local flavor.

“It will be a combination of bringing over some of our stars and then hopefully having some local Filipino fighters, and maybe bringing in some of the guys from Japan and South Korea,” said Fertitta, who believes the UFC’s success in the country can be boiled down to a couple key elements.

An open workout in the Philippines featuring former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell drew more than 4,000 fans to the Mall of Asia in Passay City on Sunday.

With the UFC already airing on ABS-CBN in the Philippines, the country’s largest media company, UFC owner Lorenzo Feritta concluded that the UFC is “probably more mainstream in the Philippines than…in the US”.

Kevin Burns vs. Anthony Johnson II at The Ultimate Fighter 8 Finale

After their first fight ended in controversy, Kevin Burns (7-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and Anthony Johnson (5-2 MMA, 2-2 UFC) will meet again in December at the live finale for "The Ultimate Fighter: Team Nogueira vs. Team Mir."

Sources close to both fighters today said that the two competitors have agreed to the fight and that it will be finalized in the coming days.

The Ultimate Fighter 8 Finale takes place Dec. 13, though a location has been not announced.

For all of us Andre Arlovski fans...

Andrei Arlovski vs. Roy Nelson Added To EliteXC: Heat

Heavyweights Andrei Arlovski and Roy Nelson will square off at EliteXC “Heat” on October 4th at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida.

CBS, EliteXC, and Affliction jointly announced the matchup earlier today.

Both Nelson and Arlovski are under contract with Affliction, indicating that the promotions are willing to work together to challenge the UFC’s position as the top mixed martial arts promotion in the world.

..... Personally I don't think anything affliction or EliteEX does is going to effect the UFC.

Quinton Jackson vs. Wanderlei Silva Likely For UFC 93

A long-rumored rematch between former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and former PRIDE light heavyweight champion Wanderlei Silva is likely to take place at UFC 93 on January 31st in Las Vegas, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Kevin Iole.

“A very good source told me on Tuesday he expects Jackson and Silva to fight Jan. 31 (Super Bowl weekend) in Las Vegas in UFC 93,” wrote Iole. “It’s a very fluid situation, but it’s almost certain it won’t happen in November and it’s very unlikely for December.”

The matchup was expected to be featured as the co-main event alongside Randy Couture vs. Brock Lesnar at UFC 91 in November.

UFC 93 in headlined by a champion vs. champion clash as UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre takes on UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn in a blockbuster welterweight rematch.

Having an open workout featuring Chuck Liddell is probably not the way to go. LOL.
