**The UFC is going to Russia**

Postby bruins2012 » Sat Jan 13, 2018 8:13 am

The first-ever UFC show in Russia is set to happen as early as September, as the event has already been scheduled in one of the biggest arenas in Moscow, RT Sport has learned from the venue.

Staff at Moscow's Olympiyskiy Stadium (Olympic Stadium), which has a capacity of up to 35,000 spectators, confirmed to RT Sport that a UFC show is booked at the venue for September 14 and 15.

The UFC has yet to announce the news, but the possibility of a show in Russia was first raised by the promotion’s president, Dana White, at a press conference following the UFC 205 event at Madison Square Garden, New York, back in November 2016.

Russia’s most popular fighter, undefeated lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov, who was victorious on the UFC 205 card against Michael Johnson, has long been rumored to headline an event his home country.

Nice, this could be fun for guys like Taisumov and Zipit Mariasharipova that are on the verge of breaking through and ready to make a big statement.

finally collusion with Russia & The UFC - I just hope they don't make the El Cucuy vs Khabib on that card in Sept - I was hoping for something in April before Ramadan

Chechens and Dagestanis will dominate...as far as ethnic Russians go, the best one in the UFC isn't even a Russian citizen (I don't think)....since Shevchenko represents Kyrgyzstan.
