If someone would have told you five years ago that the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will be holding an event in Salt Lake City before New York City, your first response would have most likely been something along the lines of 'child, please.'
Well my friends, the "Big Apple's" chances of beating out the "City of Saints" in hosting a UFC fight card looks 'bout ready to 'kiss the baby.'
The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that according to Bill Colbert, the director of the Pete Sauzo Utah Athletic Commission (PSUAC), the UFC has officially requested to hold a Sunday night event at EnergySolutions Arena on August 1 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Colbert also stated that the event will air for free, live on Versus, making it the second UFC event to air on the cable network.
