UFC Brisbane 2012 just got turned up a notch!
Way back in October we brought you the news that the UFC was planning to hold a local version of the The Ultimate Fighter in Australia. This forms part of the UFC’s rumoured strategy of creating a number of local versions of the reality show with the winners coming together in a “World Cup of UFC”.
This strategy seems to be gaining a lot of traction with plans for The Ultimate Fighter Brazil already well under way.
Today UFC Managing Director of International Development Marshall Zelanik officially announced a UFC Brisbane 2012 event along with the news that the event would be the finale of the first The Ultimate Fighter Australia!
Great news for Aussie UFC fans!
While not yet officially announcing a date for the UFC Brisbane 2012 event, it has been revealed that the event will take place at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.
My tip is that we’ll see two Aussie coaches as the main event for UFC Brisbane 2012 – who are your guesses as to who they’ll be?
Update: News has come out that it’s going to be The Ultimate Fighter Australia vs UK – nicknamed “The Smashes”! Epic!
