Ufc back to Seattle in 2012!

Great news for fight fans from Seattle, Portland, and Vancouver.

Three unassigned venue dates coming up:

Ufc on Fx 5 - October 5 (Friday)

Ufc on Fox 5 - December 8 (Saturday)

Ufc on Fx 6 - December 14 (Friday)

*The Ufc released an official schedule at Ufc 148 for the remainder of 2012*

"CALGARY UFC fans in the Pacific Northwest, rejoice. The octagon will soon make a return trip to the region.

UFC president Dana White today revealed the promotion is currently planning on bringing an event to Seattle before year's end.

"I know we're going to Seattle this year," White said. "I can't remember the date."

White said he wasn't sure whether or not the proposed event is expected to serve as a pay-per-view event or a "Fight Night" caliber card, as it was the first time the promotion visited the city in March 2011. That event, "UFC Fight Night 24: Nogueira vs. Davis" drew an impressive 13,741 fans and a $1,182,850 live gate to the city's KeyArena at Seattle Center. Both figures remain records for UFC Fight Night events in the U.S.

The UFC returned to the Pacific Northwest in June 2011 for "UFC 131: Dos Santos vs. Carwin," which served as the second of two UFC events in Vancouver during a two-year trial period for MMA in the city. However, Vancouver is not currently a viable option for the promotion until British Columbia establishes provincial-wide MMA regulation. A bill designed to address that issue was introduced to the British Columbia legislature this past May.

Until then, Vancouver's loss will remain Seattle's gain.

"Of course we want to go back to Vancouver," White said. "We would like to, but it looks like we'll be hitting Seattle a few times before we go back to Vancouver."

For more on the UFC's upcoming schedule, stay tuned to the UFC Rumors of the site."

I might be going to this one. I've never been to an MMA event before, so it should be pretty exciting!

Hopefully they announce the date, and card soon, I wanna get pumped!
