The UFC is becoming an even more worldwide promotion with every day. After recently holding events in England, the United Arab Emirates and Canada, not to mention the United States, the organization looks to expand into Asia. President of the promotion Dana White said they should be opening an office in China.
“Lorenzo (Fertitta) has been in China for the past ten days and we’ll see what happens,” says White.
Dana is keen on the Asian public, however, that doesn’t divert his attention from continuing to promote the organization’s growth in the USA, where he awaits the go-ahead to hold MMA events in strategic locations like New York.
Lately the UFC held four events in less than a month. The UFC top dog’s outlook is even grander then that, though.
“It’s a work in progress. If you told me six or seven years ago that we’d be holding 34 events in one year, I’d say you were crazy. It’s possible and likely that we will reach 100 shows per year,” he told MMAJunkie.
