UFC coming to Hawaii with or without BJ Penn
1 hour ago | source: mmaweekly.com | 3809 Views | 16 Comments

According to UFC President Dana White, the plan for the UFC’s first ever show in Hawaii was to have former lightweight and welterweight champion B.J. Penn headline a card at the Aloha Bowl.

Unfortunately when Penn lost to Nick Diaz at UFC 137 last October, the Hawaiian has opted to take some much needed time off and it threw a bit of a monkey wrench into their plans.

“We’re still working on that, but we want to do it. I was kind of hoping to go to Hawaii again and do a B.J. (Penn) fight at the Aloha Bowl, but B.J. wants to take some time off. He’s going to relax for a while,” White revealed about the UFC going to Hawaii.

“We’re coming regardless,” said White. “But that was the fight I really wanted to do there.”

I'd like to see BJ fight at the Aloha stadium, but I been to one UFC event, and I doubt I'd go again. We paid $250 for some nosebleed seats. I could barely see what was going on in the cage, I ended up watching the screen the whole time. Plus it sucked cause I didn't have the normal commenting of Joe Rogan. I think they'll end up making it more expensive out here than the mainland prices.

Have to agree with Chino here. I went to 2 UFCs and a WEC while I was at school on the mainland. It was kind of shitty. If you really enjoy live sporting events you may feel differently, but a lot of things about it annoyed me. You can't really see shit in the octagon, there is a TON of downtime between fights (during the prelims it was over half an hour at some points), people in your aisle are constantly getting up to take a piss, etc. Give me a cooler of ice cold beer and a friend's house to watch it at and I'll be there instead in a heartbeat.

Who knows if they'll have an event here again though so maybe some of y'all first-timers should check it out. Just giving my 2 cents.

ah, I don't think I'd enjoy most sporting events, so take that for what its worth. I'd probably be equally unhappy at a football or basketball game. if you don't mind the annoyances that go along with live sporting events, you may really enjoy a UFC event

Stu P Dasso - Sucks you two had bad experiences. I went to 2 live ufcs, had pretty decent seats and had a Fkn blast both times <img src="/images/phone/apple.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>



Were you drinking at the fights? I was sober so I was at a different event then everyone else that was ripped, haha.

Another thing that was annoying was all the fights in the crowd, haha. Reminds me of the drunk uncles at the old dole cannery fights there to support their family, haha. We all know da kine...."Lick dis faka!!! Show'em your bloodline!!!"

The only way I'd go back to the UFC fights is if someone bought me great seats (hint, hint). I put out on the first date if anyone needs a date, haha.

I've been hearing those Uncle Dana promises of coming to Hawaii for over 6 years. I'll believe it when I see it.
Agreed on the tix being expensive even for nose bleeds Phone Post

They haven't reserved a date at the Stadium yet. I always thought they should try to pair it up with the Pro Bowl (if it comes back) if it was possible.

Penn vs. Koscheck is the fight that makes sense to me as the main event. Depends if BJ still wants to fight. I think Mayhem and Leben have to be on the card. If they wont let Lawler/Mayhem 2 happen in the UFC then maybe Cung Le vs. Mayhem and Leben vs. Silva 2? Throw in Tavares and Gomi? Shit would sell tickets...

It would make sense to do it in Nov or Dec after Leben's suspension is up...Penn v Koscheck and Leben v Mayhem...I'd buy a ticket for that card right now!
