Change of plans: UFC 83 to be held in the United States (Not Manchester, England)

Change of plans: UFC 83 to be held in the United States (Not Manchester, England)
By: MMAmania
UFC 83 will not take place at the Manchester Evening News (M.E.N.) Arena in Manchester, England, on March 8 despite previous reports that indicated otherwise, according to Brawl Sports.

Apologies, Euro fans.

Steve Seivert reveals today that the show will instead be “relocated” somewhere in the United States on the same date. No official reason was given for the decision. Hoewever, Seivert has an idea.

Here’s a snip:

“Hosting a show March 8 - regardless of location - is a very aggressive strategy for the UFC. It’s one week after UFC 82 in Columbus, which has the draw of a fight that has hardcore UFC fans salivating - the middleweight title bout between Anderson Silva and Dan Henderson…. Back to back shows in the states … smacks of over saturation to me, but fans will ultimate decide with their wallets.”

According to the report, the UFC plans to head back to the cash-cow known as Manchester, however, it just won’t be on March 8.

Rumored match ups for the UFC 83 fight card thus far include the middleweight debut of Michael Bisping inside the Octagon against Charles McCarthy and Houston Alexander is penciled in to take on James Irvin in a light heavyweight tilt.Stick around for more details.

I wonder why.

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.

so we paying for this card

cuz if so i mite just wait till the next day and catch it free

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.
