So when the UFC's unofficial schedule came out, a fuel date on 2/17 for an international event was on it. A lot of us speculated Japan or somewhere in Asia (hell I thought it'd be in Sweden) but with the UFC going to Japan on March 3rd, I doubt they'll go to Asia in back to back months.
Then Ariel Helwani re-tweeted this tweet from a guy who has some ties (allegedly) with Mark Hunt:
@arielhelwani Big meeting with #UFC bosses taking place in Vegas today in a bid to lay a date and secure an event for New Zealand.
For the past 3 years the UFC has gone to Australia in February. With the company holding a show in Australia in December, could their spot in the rotation be replaced by a Fuel card in New Zealand? Maybe something with a Sturve vs Hunt main event and a Thiago Silva vs James Te Huna Co-Main?
