Dana White believes that the UFC will make it’s first trip to Russia sometime during 2013, likely in the form of a live event.
“I would say this year (we’ll go to Russia),” White told a limited group of reporters following Saturday’s UFC on FOX 6 card in Chicago. “I think what’s going to go on in Russia is we’ll put on a live event there first. We’ll do a live event in Russia, and just like every other event we’ve done, you do the live event and it explodes.
This is a continuation of the worldwide globetrotting that the UFC has planned for 2013, which also includes India.
