    whitaker in Australia is one for instance have Woodley and Tyron in the UK. Have Kevin lee in Detroit boxing nails this on head than fans travel to the USA to follow these fighters. Woodley vs till in Dallas makes no sense imagine the atmosphere in the Uk. Conor in Dublin khabib winning the title in Russia would of been great come on ufc! What do you think?

    Its going to be really difficult to point out all the wrong things in this post. Fighters home countries for example, perhaps more importantly, what exactly a country is. Im pretty sure only one geographic location you listed is a country

    Money. The main source of revenue is the American ppv market. As there are differing time zones it makes it difficult.

    That is all

    What are you talking about? They always load up cards with local talent.

    They don't do many PPVs in Europe because the time zone difference makes it inaccessible to North American audiences.

    For example... UFC 224 in Brazil had 13 fights. 13 of those fights had Brazilian fighters... Cards in the UK are always full of UK fighters. Unless it's WMMA or men's flyweights, though it's going to be rare to get a title fight outside the Western Hemisphere.

    Seems like the only time Makdessi, Mein, Aubin Mercier, Taleb etc... fight is on the Canadian cards haha. I think the UFC likes to keep its title fights in north america probably because of different time zones plus the whole vegas betting and bullshit. I don't really know what you're on about.
