While Dana White held high praise for Cowboys Stadium after he attended the massive structure earlier this year for a high-profile boxing match, the UFC president has been reluctant to guarantee his organization will soon visit the venue.

But could Strikeforce possibly steal the UFC's thunder by holding an event there first?

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said you'll likely see his organization contesting bouts in the 80,000-seat stadium in October. Well, sort of.

Unless the whole thing is backed by EA that would be promotional suicide. The expense to put on an event there would be absolutely insane, and they couldn't even come close to selling a quarter of the seats there let alone selling out.

if it's just in the video game though, that's kind of cool.

Even if Fedor was fighting and tickets were free they couldn't fill a third of the seats.
