    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I think Germany is good bet also, Boxing is big business in Germany so i dont see why the UFC would'nt be successful.

    Also it's a wealthy country with a fairly large poulation so lots of money to be made by Mr White.

    Actually, I have the opposite experience. Everyone I knew who did FMA were rich geeks with drivers and nannies waiting for them outside the gym. I think it's the same with BJJ/MMA now. One of the best grappling schools in the country meets at a private school's gym.

    Anyway, I think the UFC would go over well in the Phils. The company would obviously play up the country's boxing history, and there is a rabid set of fans over there, let me tell you.

    Well the Philippines already has the "Universal Reality Combat Championship"

    So I don't see any problem with them embracing the UFC.

    I'd like to see it down here in Aus as well, give some of our local fighters a chance to show what they have got.

    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Only half true, people, especially politicians, would ban it for being to brutal or what so ever. They try to ban computer games and **** claiming it would cause violence and murder... crazy people running this country, they make Gorge look reasonable from time to time.
    I would like to see it here in Germany but that won't happen. The money is there but not the “surroundings” you need in order to make this a big event.
    Plus MMA is not that famous in Germany, people don't know about it, they know boxing, maybe Judo and Karate/KungFu from movies, end of story for UFC in Germany. :sad10:
