it doesn't seem that many but Ireland isn't the biggest of countries so theres no need to have a huge arena if it isn't going to be filled week in week out. its a new venue as well so I'm guessing that the UFC chose that place because the facilities were good and what they needed.

Favourite Fighters:

Dan 'The Outlaw' Hardy
Anderson 'The Spider' Silva
Renato 'Babalu' Sobral
Michael 'The Count' Bisping
Thiago 'The Pitbull' Alves
Kenny 'Kenflo' Florian
Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson

No idea, they've only just established the sport in the UK and Ireland so i guess they will continue to put on fights in the UK going to countries like Wales and Scotland where they haven't been yet....

The United Kingdom (UK)spans the english isle and the Northeastern part of Ireland. ALthough Dublin falls outside of the 'UK' its hard not too associate the 2. Not a major deal- and I bet you didn't know NE Ireland is included.

It is a easy mistake to make, however I think if u asked an Irish person then I think they would disagree about their country being independent not being a big deal...
