UFC posted on their official twitter account last night that a “special announcement” would be made today from Mexcio City, Mexcio. There are speculations that “The Ultimate Fighter” will be aired in Mexico for a season with heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez and number one contender Fabricio Werdum serving as coaches, or a potential UFC event in Mexico headlined by Velasquez vs Werdum.
Regardless of which route is taken, this is another big step for the UFC’s continuating expansion of its promotion to go “global”.
There have been rumors of a potential card in Sweden for the Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson rematch as well. We will keep you updated with the UFC’s announcement.
