“We are doing this fight in the U.K. and then we’re going to do a fight in Ireland and from there we’ll be expanding into Spain, Italy and Germany. The whole idea is that you move the show around. Las Vegas will still be the hot spot, where most of the big fights take place. But beyond that, the challenge is to grow globally.”

– Majority owner of the UFC, Lorenzo Fertitta, talks about the planned international expansion of his promotion in a recent Q&A with the Las Vegas Sun along with UFC President Dana White.
