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.

Yes!! Bring it to Australia.
I would love to see MMA growing more in this country.
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.
I've always had a feeling PinoyLand could one day produce batches of MMA ass-kickers. This could be the beginning of some awesome ****.

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
Has anyone seen the "Platinum-Fighting " team cage fighting in the Philippines?
Was it anygood?

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.

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:
My son's teacher at LA boxing is one of the forerunners there.
