The UFC is making its California debut tomorrow before a sold-out Arrowhead Pond.
Maybe it's the return of Tito Ortiz. Maybe it's because it seemed like the new cool thing to do for Californians. Maybe it's a mix of those two things and a whole lot more.
One thing is clear, though, the UFC is on a meteoric rise in terms of popularity and legitimacy. Now that Marc Ratner is onboard, it appears that skies the limit.
Next stop: Madison Square Garden.
