LONDON – Next to "can you get me tickets," UFC president Dana White is most often asked where the promotion is headed next.

Both questions were frequently posed today during a Q&A session with UFC Fight Club members at the Earls Court Exhibition Centre in London

Two new markets appear to have risen above White's usual response ("we're going everywhere"): Brazil and India.

White said UFC executive Lorenzo Fertitta is headed to India following Saturday's UFC 120 event, and he also said the promotion is seriously interested in Brazil following the South American country's successful bid for the 2016 Summer Olympics.
