    The UFC knows how big the Brazilian market is. UFC 153 drew a live local TV audience of 12 million and UFC president Dana White just announced TUF: Brazil was doing "NFL" numbers. But this report from Super Lutas is perhaps the clearest example of just how popular MMA is in Brazil.

    Brazilians getting free tickets!

    They offer 450 tickets to more than 1000 people present at the event... and expect everyone to make an orderly line???

    LOL!!!

    Clearly The organization thought this would be like American crowd (pacific) instead of the Brazilian crowd they got...

    if they really want to be big in Brazil, they better get local people to organize this...

    Neat. Glad to see it taking hold there. Its about time, considering how many Brazillians are at the top of the sport.

    Exactly what I thought. If you're gonna offer free stuff around here, you better get some strong security people to enforce the lines.
    UFC needs to get in touch with some local security companies to learn how to do those things.

    I think it is a less clearer picture in popularity than the stuff you mentioned first.
