PostSubject: UFC event appears destined for Oklahoma City!   Tue 01 Jul 2008, 1:14 pm



A UFC event appears destined for Oklahoma City in the next six-to-eight months, according to a published report.

UFC President Dana White is quoted as confirming the news in an article on NewsOk.com.

“We’re working on bringing a live event there,” White reportedly said at last Thursday’s Associated Press Sports Editors’ convention in Minneapolis.
It is uncertain at this time whether the Oklahoma City show would be televised on pay-per-view or would be a Spike TV special. The Ford Center, with a seating capacity of 19,599 is the venue most likely to be booked for a UFC event.

Oklahoma City has proven to be a growing hotbed for mixed martial arts, as former Oklahoma State wrestlers and current Team Takedown fighters Jake Rosholt, Shane Roller, and Johny Hendricks have all performed in front of large crowds when competing locally for the Masters of the Cage promotion.

The market also turned in one of the highest ratings for EliteXC’s debut CBS telecast on May 31. The show’s main event between Kimbo Slice and James Thompson drew an 11.1 share during the 10:30-10:45 p.m. ET time slot. It was the highest rating of all CBS affiliates.
