"It makes sense that we'll do a stadium show," White said after Silva knocked out Vitor Belfort at UFC 126. "It totally makes sense. and you know, if there was ever a fight where we were going to do Dallas' [Cowboys] Stadium, this would be the fight."

Cowboys Stadium is the home of Sunday's Super Bowl, but White has met with its executives in the past about possibly holding an event there. He got his first taste of the showcase stadium when he attended a Manny Pacquiao fight, and became convinced that a UFC show would make sense there.

"When I saw that stadium I said, 'we can definitely do this,'" White said. "It's a great atmosphere for a fight."

Dana has repeatedly said he wants to keep UFC to mid sized venues. He is a strange kid!

David Weiß - you know what, he talking the shit from hes mouth. marked my words, this fight is not going to be happening and it would never be filling the stadium in texas. the only places it might get the bigger crowd thena normal is canada or brazil. most of the american peopels have not heard of either man. this is the true story of the matter.


Really? America doesn't know either of them? WOW...DFW will never fill the 100,000 Cowboys Stadium. I would still go...

Might be the reason GSP is now considering taking the fight.

If he gets a % of revenue from ticket sales and they hold it in Dallas stadium, that is some sweet bank!

Pacquiao/Clottey was at Cowboys stadium, 50,994 in attendance. UFC 129 will be around 42,000. Getting 50,000+ for a historic MMA event in Texas would not be an issue. It is more accurate to say you are talking shit from your mouth, as you put it.
