A fight of the magnitude has to be in North America, and the UFC has been waiting for something to promote in Cowboy Stadium.
Put it in Canada or Brazil sure you will fill the stadium full of 70,000.
But it in Cowboy stadium and you will get 50,000-70,000 people paying Ufc 148 money..plus its easier to get to..and most of all NEUTRAL ground.
Dallas is easy for anyone in the world to fly in to, anywhere in North America in under 5 hours.
Rio you have to connect a few times and takes 10-15 hours for anyone in North America to get to.
They did Toronto x 3 by the time this fight happens, and while the last two haven't had GSP, Jones is suppose to be the future and I don't think they sold it out.
