UFC Targeting Puerto Rico Event In 2015

UFC Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Marc Ratner spoke with UFC.com about when the UFC will be coming to Puerto Rico.

“I’m going to Puerto Rico to meet with the athletic commission and some government officials there because we do want to fight there sometime in 2015 (in San Juan),” Ratner told UFC.com. “And this will be setting it up. Making sure they use the Unified Rules.”

“It’s a big boxing country, no question there,” Ratner stated. “I think it’s a natural place for UFC. I think we have to get more fighters there. One of our champions, Anthony Pettis, is from Puerto Rico. So they know about combat sports. Obviously, we need to do more pay-per-view work there and more television work there. But I think if we bring a show there, we’ll do great.”
