    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"

    http://www.urccmma.com/

    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.

    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

    I think UFC in the Phillipines is a great idea.

    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:
