UFC 99 A Success In Germany

UFC 99 

I suppose it depends on your perspective on what your definition of a successful MMA event is; nonetheless, despite only 12,800 German MMA fans packing into 20,000-seat Lanxess Arena, the gate was relatively healthy: a $1,300,000 live gate.

It was successful in that despite no television or PPV deal in place in Germany until just 4 months ago, it went off without a hitch.  What is definitely water-cooler fodder is whether more cards will be forthcoming in Germany or not.  But since there’s an European push by the UFC, I wouldn’t be surprised if more events are on the horizon.
