UFC NEWS – UFC Eyeing Major Brazilian Event In May 2012

December 12, 2011 11:49 am by Dan Harvey

UFC President Dana White announced this past Saturday that the UFC will make an effort to return to Brazil as soon as May. With record numbers drawing from Brazil’s prideful fans, the Brazilian venue could possibly host Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen II if Sonnen wins his next fight vs. Mark Munoz.

The event would undoubtedly attract an immense amount of attendance, as Sonnen could arguably be Brazil’s largest rival in the MMA community. Fittingly, the UFC plans on hosting the fights in a stadium sized location, such as the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada. If the UFC does plan to go through with an event in the month of May, it would give both Anderson Silva and his next opponent enough time to recover and prepare for a possible main event contest.
