Bisping and Hardy are both booked up.

Guess John Hathaway couldn't sell out the MEN or O2.

This is a pretty silly thing to say Britain might be behind other countries in terms of MMA but a fan is a fan and we don't only know British fighters, I'm sure foreiners could just as easily sell out. Besides many UK fans moan about getting Bisping-headed cards- I agree I think he is a CME fighter really.

Of course they could, doesn't mean they're coming there.

The UK's two biggest stars are Bisping and Hardy though and they've never missed an England show, both guys obviously though, can't be on this one.

Don't feel bad though, they won't come to North Carolina again for a while most likely.

Yeah Wembley has a roof but they couldn't do 100,000 tickets here.

We're plagued by the timezone.
Ha, very good point actually. If we had a UFC 100 or UFC 92 type card over here it might be a different story.

They should make the Americans stay up late at night for once! So they know what we have to do everytime.

I think one of the main things preventing it, along with fan backlash in the US, is the sponsorship deals UFC have. The UFC have obligations to fulfil that I dont think they would be able to accomplish if they started moving decent PPVs to a later time in the US.
