In 2014

- EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa): 6
- Asia: 6
- Brazil: As much as 13 but probably less.

PS. Your graphs arent showing for me.
Where did you get a potential 13 events in Brazil?

On the UFC site for 2014 they have scheduled 8 events in United States
, 5 in Canada and 2 in Brazil.
And also they have China, England, Singapore and United Arab Emirates.

Dana said 13 Brazil events in 2014
http://mmajunkie.com/2013/09/ufc-pla...razil-in-2014/
But then Zelaznik said White's hope for 13 events was lofty
http://mmajunkie.com/2013/10/zelazni...ut-passionate/

So I doubt it'll be 13. But 2 is definately to low. They did 7 last year and..
In 2013 UFC had two brazil events between January-May
In 2014 UFC already has two brazil events between January-March

Will see though.

Yes, you never know what is a hype and what might actually happen.

Last year they had 2 events in January, 3 in February, 2 March and 4 in April.

This year for those 4 months they have Jan=3, Feb=3, Mar=4 and Apr=4.

If we extrapolate first 4 months to the whole year, we might have 40 events in 2014.

btw, can you see those graphs now?

But they already in 2013 hosted almost half of their events outside of USA.

For 2014 they have plans for 6 events in Europe, 13 events in Brazil and several in Asia.
They also have plans for Russia and Mexico, but those are still wishlist.

We don’t have definite numbers for 2014, so here are the numbers up to 2013:

what is Bitish Isles?

Due to not being on TV the UFC is not able to build a customer base, which is way they used to offer all events on UFC.tv for free to Germans (this has partially changed as a consequence of the Fight Pass).

zec1234 posted the biggest reason. It should also be mentioned that their last event pulled shit numbers, but that was caused more by the UFC sending rather low level fighters to Germany. Combined with the prices for the event a lot of fans didn't feel like it was worth going (me included).

What leads you to believe that the UFC loves Germany? They had 2 events in Germany. One was a decent card (UFC 99) the other one not so much. Unfortunately fighting sports (apart from Boxing) never were popular to begin with in Germany, so the UFC has a tough road ahead if they want to generate revenues in that market.

It should be British Isles.
That includes England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland.
I separated them because they have more UFC events than rest of the Europe combined.
