The UFC can use guys like Shogun and Machida for Fox cards and come back the following month and use guys like Anderson and Big Nog to sell to the Brazilian fans.
The UFC doesn't need a Canadian fighter to draw in Canada, MMA is huge here in Canada.
Just look at UFC 140, UFC 131, UFC 115, UFC 113 and UFC 97....all in Canada, all without Canadian main event draws.
