The skinny on UFC UK

Okay, I’ve done a bit of responsible journalism and investigated the situation with the UFC UK event in March. It turns out that it was never the plan to hold an event in London on March 8th. The original plan was to hold a UK event in Liverpool sometime in March, but the arena they were looking to use wasn’t ready. Since then the plan has been a big April show in Manchester.

So long story short, the UK event isn’t turning into a US show, it’s just changing dates. I hope all you other MMA news sites appreciate all the effort it took writing six people who know what they’re talking about to ask them wassup.

    which six people?

    Six people who don’t even want anyone to know they like my site :-p Well, 5 people. I don’t think the other one cares. But it’s funny how people don’t want to be officially associated with us

  • Thomas Larsen

    I DO! And I spread the word as much as possible.

    I like this site because it is a NO BS site which portrays the MMA “industry” the way it actually is using normal language, lol! :)

    You mean the UFC ISN’T running a PPV the week after they run UFC 82!?!?! SHOCKING!

    Still can’t believe MMAweekly was so dumb to put that down as a date for an event. People in the MMA community need to work on growing more brains.

    And this is another reason why you are the shiznit.

  • kentyman

    You forgot to say horse-cock.

    “Still can’t believe MMAweekly was so dumb to put that down as a date for an event. ”

    Would you be refering to their RUMORS page?
    Because RUMOR seems like an accurate description for the info.

  • Xavier

    Yes, a rumor that the UFC would have a PPV the week after having a PPV.

    I’ll go make a rumors page right now too, and put down a RUMOR that the democrats might nominate Dana White. Of course, it’s illogical and silly to even mention as a rumor, but since apparently the word RUMOR means you can put any bollocks you want on a website no matter how stupid it is, well fuck, I better get on it.

    Thanks Atom for the lesson!

    MMA Weekly still has Shogun #2, higher than the guy who just defeated him. They’re real credible over there.

  • ajadoniz

    linker, thanks for not being a scraper like the other mma sites that regurgitate info w/o due diligence.

  • Atom

    Obviously, my point was that they put it in the rumos sections, so don’t take it as gospel or get your panties in a bunch if it turns out to have been.. well, ONLY a rumor. Their job isn’t to make shit up, they clearly heard it from somewhere. If the UFC can hold 3 cards in a month, why wouldn’t they try two weekends in a row.

    lol @ Dana the Democrat. He may be a jack ass, but I doubt he’s a donkey.

  • Atom

    This must be more of that RUMOR nonsense about UFC 83 being on March 8th. :)

    Maia / Herman @ufc83

  • Terrence Halladay

    ufc never had a UK date set for March 8 = ufc is telling people now that they never had a UK date set for March 8

  • fightlinker

    whoah that totally blew my mind
