DFW wants to bring the UFC to Cowboys Stadium

by Kevin Iole | source: sports.yahoo.com

Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta were ringside at Cowboys Stadium on Saturday for Pacquiao vs Clottey.

White, who received one of the night’s loudest ovations when he was shown on the giant video board, said he was extremely impressed by the venue and wants to bring a UFC show there.

It’s unlikely the Cowboys will schedule a UFC event during football season, but sometime between March and July of 2011, count on a UFC card in Cowboys Stadium.

ROFL at selling out that stadium. only if they dropped prices by 60% They can sell out.....sometimes (and no, 111 is NOT sold out contrary to dana's twitter) and now you think they could do 80,000 fucking people??? LMAO by the way, that stadium has done over 100,000 attendance in both football and basketball. Sidenote: Even if they did sell out 80,000 seats? it still wouldn't be the biggest attedance at an mma event believe it or not. Pride Shockwave did 91,000 almost 9 years ago.

I wouldn't be surprised if it did outstage that event. The reason the UFC hasnt pulled an attendance like that before is because they haven't had a venue that size before. UFC sells-out all the time, now they'll more tickets to give out & possibly match that 50,000.
