Mark Fischer, the EVP of UFC Asia was also at the event, and he predicted that the UFC will host a show in the country on 2014:
"It's great to see such a nice response to the UFC, to Mark, from the Philippines. The last few days has been a real eye opener." said Mark Fischer, the EVP of UFC Asia, "All this is just making me want to go back and report to all the top guys, Dana, Lorenzo and everybody, that we have to have an event here in Manila!"
"It is still just a prediction right now, but I believe we will be here (in the Philippines) in 2014. We are going to have Mark Munoz on that card, and together let's all make it a reality"
