Tuesday, November 12th will mark exactly 20 years since the very first UFC event in Denver, Colorado. On November 16th the UFC will be in Las Vegas for Georges St. Pierre versus Johny Hendricks, but according to Guilherme Cruz, the UFC is returning to Brazil on the 15th.
And now, time for breaking news: UFC will return to Brazil on November 15, a national holiday. Place still to be defined— Guilherme Cruz (@guicruzzz) June 24, 2013
For the record, November 15th marked the establishment of Brazil as a republic. Their upcoming September 4th card in Belo Horizonte comes on the week of Brazilian Independence Day. This would be Brazil's 6th UFC show this year and it would surely be a Fox Sports 1 event. It would also mean two events in two days, something the UFC achieved twice in 2012 -- UFC on FX 4 (6/22) followed by UFC 147 (6/23), and UFC on FX 6 (12/14 in US) followed by TUF 16 Finale (12/15).
