With Australia now “infected,” UFC considering Melbourne event, “TUF” expansion

Earlier this week Ultimate Fighting Championship president Dana White said Australia will become an annual host site for the promotion.

And following’s Saturday’s successful UFC 110 event and Australian debut, which drew a promotional non-U.S. record crowd of 17,831 attendees to Sydney’s Acer Arena, White said the roots are now in place for continental dominance.

With fans now promoting the UFC as much (if not more) than the promotion can do on its own, White expects not only a future event in Melbourne but a possible Australian version of “The Ultimate Fighter” reality series.
