UFC 134 tickets for "Rio" are coming ... eventually.

Promotion President Dana White is expected to make a special trip to Brazil to officially announce the upcoming UFC 134 fight card from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as well provide detailed ticket information for all the local (and International) fight fans looking to attend.

Gracie Mag brought word of the ticket scheduling earlier today.

UFC 134 will feature Anderson "The Spider" Silva defending his middleweight title against Yushin "Thunder" Okami, while Mauricio "Shogun" Rua will make his return to the Octagon for the first time since coughing up his 205-pound strap to Jon "Bones" Jones.

In addition, mixed martial arts legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will make what could be his last stand in front of a hometown crowd when he tries to quell the uprising of division prospect Brendan "The Hybrid" Schaub.
