We’ve had tremendous success with our two previous events, with last year’s UFC 127 remaining the equal fastest sell-out in the organisation’s history. I’ve got no doubt that our Aussie fans will be just as excited about our March event, especially as they’ll witness UFC history with the introduction of the flyweight division. The 125-pound contenders will absolutely put everything on the line is Sydney, knowing that the winners of those two bouts will then have a shot at the inaugural flyweight title. It’s going to be a great show!”
In commenting on the choice of Thiago Alves and Martin Kampmann as the main event, Zelaznik when on to say:
Thiago Alves and Martin Kampmann are two seasoned mixed martial artists who are sure to go to war in the Octagon. Both athletes are coming off recent wins and will be looking to continue their streak to climb the welterweight ladder.
With the flyweights making their debut and vying for the title, the event will definitely see worldwide attention.
