Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is definitely heading to the United Kingdom (UK) this year, but it won't be in Liverpool, England, which should come as a mighty blow to Liverpooleans who were already stewing after getting stiffed last October.
That's according to UFC Managing Director of International Development Marshall Zelaznik, who recently updated mixed martial arts (MMA) fans (via Ground and Pound TV) on its overseas schedule.
"We'll definitively be in the UK. It will not be in Liverpool, but we will be in the UK in September. We don't have the city, venue and date to announce yet. Italy is definitely on our target list for next year, could be a real possibility. I'm also keeping a very close eye on what's happening in Scotland, their new arena there, I think that could be something you see next year. Germany is always on our list. We have an A- and a B-list. It's usually on our B-list. That's not a bad thing. There are many countries that aren't even on the B-list."
Hear more from Zelaznik on the promotion's European expansion after the jump.
What say you Maniacs, is Germany still a market for the UFC without having a television presence? Where should the Octagon land next?
