LOS ANGELES – The UFC's ventures abroad continue to earn financial success, and UFC president Dana White today declared November's "UFC 105: Couture vs. Vera" in the U.K. an official sell-out.
MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) was informed by additional Zuffa officials that less than 1,000 seats remain for the Nov. 14 event at Manchester Evening News Arena in Manchester, England. All are expected to be gone by fight time.
White also said the UFC is targeting an April trip to Mexico, while confirming the organization's recently rumored trip to the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va., for UFC Fight Night 20 on Jan. 11 was also official.
While the UFC 105 trip to the U.K. is already a success, White said traveling internationally presents some unique financial challenges.Link
