Dana White reveals "Two Cards On One Night" plans for Japan event in FebruaryPosted on October 3, 2011, 05:45 PM by Trent Reinsmith
A short time ago UFC President Dana White said that at some point the promotion would hold two events on the same day in different parts of the world. Well, it seems as if some day may take place early in 2012.
Following Saturday’s UFC on Versus 6 fight card, which was held at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C, White said that the first two event on the same night could take place with fights in Japan and the United States in late February of next year.
White speaking to NBCSports.com said, “The way that would work is that the fight in Japan would be live here on free TV. It would be live here on free TV and lead into a pay per view in the United States.”
White also said that the two fights on one night would only work when the promotion held an international and U.S. fight on the same night. The UFC President also said that the Japanese fans would be presented with a solid fight card.
The UFC is scheduled to return to Japan on February 26, but no U.S. card has been set for that date.
