The UFC sent out a promotional email yesterday announcing that UFC 72 will indeed be held in charming Belfast. I asked an old acquaintance of mine who lives in Belfast over email how he thought the UFC would do there, and he responded
i’d say that this event would go down a storm (very well) over here…as half the bloody city considers themselves tough men anyway – they’ll be climbin’ over each other to go to it. ( as long as it’s marketed properly – and ticket master events usually are quite well advertised).
Looking forward to hearing about how things unfold. At the moment the only announced fights on the card are American fighter Rich “Ace” Franklin vs. the Danish Martin “The Hitman” Kampmann. Speculation continues that Brandon “The Truth” Vera will appear on the card.
