Dana White: Tyrone Spong Wants to Fight in Ireland for the UFC

July 19, 2014 3:27 pm by Jonathan Kirschner

“UFC Fight Night: Dublin” took place today in Ireland and it was one of the most electric events in the history of the sport. The fights were exciting and the crowd was blowing the roof on the arena with chants and cheers all night long. GLORY kickboxing champion Tyrone Spong was at cage-side for the event and enjoyed it so much, he asked Dana White if he could fight for the UFC in Ireland.

Spong recently signed a new deal with World Series of Fighting back in January but the details of his current employment with the company is unknown. Whether Spong was joking or not, White assured us that Spong was not the only one asking for a fight in Ireland.

White mentioned during the post-fight press conference that every fighter under UFC contract now wants to fight in Ireland as well. Who would blame them? Tonight was a memorable night.
