Thing's are looking good for us, we brazilians understand MMA is an world wide sport, but we have our share of respect behind this sport and should not have been kept out of the UFC itinerary for 13 years.
To be fair, the UFC and MMA in general have been trying to establish themselves in North America the whole time, finally when future is looking bright for MMA, it's time to expand it worldwide.

With the growth speed of MMA, i'm starting to realize that the UFC bosses are going to be like gods around this sport in the future.
