President Dana White determined to move around a few venues and dates to accommodate one more UFC event in the UK by the end of this year

Still high on the incredible success of the UFC London event this past weekend, UFC president Dana White looks determined to put on one more show in the UK before winding up this year.

When White took the stage during the post-fight media scrum, he was oozing with positivity and exuberance following the successful conclusion of the event. The event delivered beyond the wildest dreams of the UFC top brass- arousing crowd, exhilarating fights and jaw-dropping finishes, the card had it all.

White said that the MMA landscape in the UK has hit its peak and the reception was beyond the phantom of his mind.

“Tonight reenergized and reminded me what it’s like to do fights over in the U.K., man,” White said. “We’re coming back this year. I don’t give a sht what the schedule is. We’re going to be moving some sht around when we get home. The way I look at it, you do half the kids that one. You come back here and do a card with them and somebody else. You take the other half of the kids to Abu Dhabi in October. Just off the top of my head, that’s what I’m thinking right now.”

It was rather enlivening to watch Dana, who is notoriously famous to not give out any fight information during the post-fight press conferences in such a jovial mood, and give out UFC’s plans for the future.

Dana White considering pulling out the UFC London card and hosting it in Abu Dhabi

During the UFC London post-fight press conference, Dana White shockingly revealed that he considered moving the entire event to Abu Dhabi.

White blew the lid off the fact that bringing the UFC London event to being was an uphill task, and although he did not divulge the details, he said that he even considered refunding the entire amount to the fans who bought tickets.

“We had some problems,” White said. “I was considering pulling out of here two weeks ago. I was going to refund everybody’s tickets and go to Abu Dhabi. … There are certain things. The world is a nutty place right now. It’s not as easy to do business. I just said, ‘I’m not going to play games, man. I’m going to go places where I’m just able to go and run my business and do what I want to do.’”
