MANCHESTER, England – The UFC's U.K. Division President, Marshall Zelaznik, rattled off the mind-boggling statistics rather nonchalantly at Thursday's "UFC 105: Couture vs. Vera" pre-fight press conference.

"The fight will be seen in over 50 countries and territories live," Zelaznik said. "It will eventually be seen in 130 countries and territories. It will be available to 400 million homes around the world."

And as the UFC returns to the site of its first modern-era European event, the company has its eyes set on even further expansion, including Australia, Abu Dhabi and Italy.

Holy $^!+!!!! Those numbers are enormous....this will definately pave the way for fighters to soon be getting those huge paydays we have all been talking about for sure. Sky's the limit with the international market and with the new blood that can be brought into the various weight divisions as well! This could be a huge next couple of years for not only the UFC, but for MMA as a whole! Awesome article and props to you sir!
