The Ultimate Fighting Championship just keeps growing and growing, as the latest numbers make plainly clear. With the final event of 2011, on December 30 in Las Vegas, the UFC will wrap up the year with 27 live television broadcasts, as reported by Junior Samurai. For 2012, UFC president Dana White has already announced plans for 34 dates for the most famous MMA event on the planet.

Though the specific dates have yet to be confirmed, the plan is to take the show to every continent in 2012. Expansion is imminent and Brazil looks set to host four events. The big news is the broadcasts on Fox TV network in the USA, the new flyweight division looks to be a go, and a fight will feature every week on reality show TUF.

As an appetizer for so many bold plans, check out the teaser for UFC 137.
