UFC Announces Huge Title Fight
March 27, 2012 by staff
UFC Announces Huge Title Fight, After months of rumors, the UFC finally confirmed that they will head back to Brazil in June. At Joao Havelange Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Anderson Silva will rematch with Chael Sonnen for the UFC middleweight belt. After a season of coaching of the first Brazilian “The Ultimate Fighter,” Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort will fight. To the press release:
“This will be the biggest sporting event of the year,” said UFC president Dana White. “Bigger than the NFL, the NBA, you name it – UFC 147 will be the biggest. The whole world wants to see this fight between Silva and Sonnen. We are broadcast in over 150 countries in 22 languages in half a billion homes. Wherever those fans are, they are going to be watching this fight.”
Don’t anybody tell White, but this is an Olympic year. One fight card in Brazil will not surpass even the opening ceremony for the Summer Olympics, but it’s a nice goal. Joao Havelange holds 46,931 for a soccer match, but presumably, floor seats will help the UFC break their record of 55,000, set at UFC 129 in Toronto.
