A centerpiece of the UFC's historical UFC 100 event was the organization's first-ever fan expo.

Part trade show, part grappling competition, part meet and greet, UFC president Dana White said at the UFC 100 post-event press conference that UFC Fan Expo 2009 drew an estimated 30,000 to 50,000 attendees.

And with a few potential stadium shows on the horizon, those figures may not be the last time a group that large gathers in the name of a UFC event.

I always had a feeling this would eventually happen. MMA is wildly popular in hawaii. If they threw their new years eve card on over there they could easily fill aloha stadium. People from all over the mainland would fly over there for the nice wheather in December and of course the fights.
