The UFC really does want to invade Brazil. In the wake of the Rio de Janeiro, mass speculation is going on about the events on tap for 2012. The major cities of Manaus, São Paulo, Salvador, and now Recife could be on course to host a UFC event. This Monday, co-owner of the UFC Lorenzo Fertitta met with the governor of the state of Pernambuco, Eduardo Campos, to discuss the possibility of holding an event in Recife in 2012, as reported by our collaborator Junior Samurai.
