I'd say there's a little truth to this, I think people would go just for the hell of it though, to see that fight and a UFC card. If the UFC brought the Ben Henderson/Nate Diaz fight to North Carolina I'd go even though I don't like either guy, even if they brought the entire card without BJ, I'd still go just to say I went and I'd probably have a good time.
Brazilians and Canadians would travel though, I'm sure some would a lot of Brazilians went to UFC 148 in Vegas.
