While no specific dates were mentioned, WEC has an interest in running future shows in Ohio. What seems to work in Ohio's favor is they typically provide WEC events with strong ratings when they air on Versus.

I'd like to see Zuffa's plans for global expansion, to include an expansion within the US, because currently they're just going to the same states over and over. I understand the logic in going to Ohio; there are big stadiums and four major cities, but I think if you want to attract new fans--you put a show on in different parts of the country.

Maybe you make an extra couple 100K by putting it on in a big venue in a state you've done well in, but I'm thinking in terms of the bigger picture. Introducing MMA to a couple thousand new fans is going to pay bigger dividends in the end.
