    The last (and only) UFC event held in a Stadium was 129, and we missed out on 148 which was supposed to be a Soccer stadium in Brazil (would have been HECTIC!) but was moved to the MGM Grand.

    There was just an enourmous vibe in the room at UFC 129, where the fighters tried that little harder to impress the 55,000 spectators (human psychology, right?) and the energy in the cage must have been unreal!

    In the US, there are so many Football/Baseball Stadiums,
    In the UK, Brazil and Europe there are so many Soccer stadiums!
    And the same in Asia too.

    Imagine Londons Olympic Stadium or Wembley Stadium :eek:

    I don't think England has a big enough MMA market to fill Wembley.

    Seeing a stadium empty and then entering it at full capacity(or close) when you're full of energy and emotion definitely does something for your psychology in a good way. It's incredible, they should definitely consider doing this more often, the fighters couldn't help being energized. There aren't too many more directions I feel the UFC can take to really step up the MMA community on a world playing field but this would be one, literally and figuratively.

    and that makes it worse. they've been bitter for 5 years, hoping UFC dies while witnessing it's growth.

    tyson fury just called out Cain. get a boxing vs mma fight in there and perhaps David Haye making a debut + bisping taking on anderson, may not sell out a football stadium but could be a big draw

    The seating capacity at Wembley is 90k, with floor seats added it would be even more. The UFC could hold the most stacked card in their history and it would still wouldnt be full.

    The only realistic place where they can get that kind of ticket numbers is in Brazil.
