UFC Looking To Invade France, Italy In Future

The UFC has taken its Octagon to places like Japan, China, England, Abu Dhabi and Brazil. Now, it appears that France and Italy are also on the horizon.

“We’ve been working hard and spending a lot of money in France to get it regulated,” said UFC president Dana White, who was in England over the weekend for another card in the country. “We’re getting there. We’re working on Italy, too. Everything’s a priority for us.”

The UFC is slated to return to Sweden and Japan in the coming months, along with two more shows in Brazil. They will also be back in Canada, which has become like a second home for the company.
