UFC returns to Brazil in January for UFC 142Posted on October 28, 2011, 10:19 PM by Trent Reinsmith
Brazil will not have to wait another ten plus years for a UFC event. MMAJunkie.com has confirmed that the promotion will return to the South American country on January 14 for UFC 142. The return will come months after a raucous crowd of 14,000 fans at Rio de Janeiro’s HSBC Arena welcomed the UFC back after an absence that extended back to 1998.
UFC 142 will take place in the same arena that UFC 134 did in August. There had been talk that the UFC would possibly hold their next event in a much larger venue, but those plans did not come to fruition for the January card.
No additional information was forthcoming for UFC 142.
