    Can anyone explain why they think ufc decided to place a card there? Its not even in the top 50 largest cities in Texas... many other cities in TX shouldve been ahead of Hidalgo imo..

    anyone?

    First you gotta explain your av picture, what's going on there and why is it significant?

    My guess is they are actually targeting fans in McAllen TX which has a higher population.

    I'm about 35 minutes south of hidalgo. That area (Mcallen, Edinburg, Pharr, San Juan, Alamo, etc.) is quite worthy. Don't look at the town alone. Mcallen has the highest food dining retail per capita in the US if I'm not mistaken. So there's expendable money. Plus we have internationals that come over from Monterey and other surrounding cities within mexico. It's a little gold mine. But if you look at that place alone, we'll you sir have the right to ask such a question.

    My guess is its the bus station of the city just bigger than Hidalgo. And its the only building in the town worth taking a pic of. Its also where TS likely lives, And he is salty as fuck.

    Just conjecture of course. But I like my explanation.

    Great fuckin movie btw... a true story.

    Maybe it's a ploy to beat down all the Hippies there?

    We are big UFC fans down here. And we could use the economic boost as well. I'm happy.

    It's really dark. And I didn't want to make any assumptions about the girl. I'm not a complete douchebag.

    So what's the issue with Hidalgo ?
