Jerry Jones 'dream' to have UFC Superfight in Cowboys Stadium

by Clarence Hill | source:

That is not a typo - yes, there is a UG Blog Jones piece that is not about Jon.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has hosted world championship boxing, the NBA All-Star, the Super Bowl, bowling, rodeo and monster trucks at Cowboys Stadium.

Now he is looking for the next big thing.

And the potential blockbuster Ultimate Fighting Championship battle between superstar middleweight champion Anderson Silva and welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre is in his cross hairs.

"We want to have the big event," Jones said Tuesday morning on his radio show on KRLD-FM 105.3. "That's a goal and a dream of mine to have as a big of a sporting event when we can at Cowboys Stadium. I can assure you that I’m on the incentive plan to get them in there."

I've been hoping for this ever since the UFC Fan Expo in Houston last year. I hope they have another fan expo in Dallas it's closer haha

It's not really hard to sell out stadiums, if the marketing is done right and the price is considered fair. I Barack Obama and Tony Robbins can sell out a stadium then so should the UFC. I live over by Gillette Stadium, ever time they have concert it is sold out the next day. When UFC 118 came to Boston I ended up paying $400 dollars for the ticket, because I was so desperate to see the show.

It's Texas. They'd fill that stadium tomorrow if dog fighting was legalized tonight. Texans love a good fight. And southerners love to travel to major sporting events. Win-win.

Great point! A fan expo would be glorious... But of course I live in DFW.

I would argue he's a great owner but a horrendous GM.

Would have to be GSP vs Andy...and I bet one would get hurt before the fight unfortunately cause that shit would be too good to be true

^ thanks for the update..!! sounds good.. you really need an Fan Expo to accompany this. Who knows, could break all previous UFC #s if they play their cards right and everything falls into place.
