“Chicago is a huge market for us,” UFC President Dana White is quoted as telling the Sun-Times. “We track pay-per-view buys for our events and ratings on Spike TV, and Chicago is a killer market for us.
“There are tons of fans in Chicago and around Chicago, and it’s going to be one of the places we hit often. It’s a great fight town, and we’re really pumped that we’re finally getting this done.”
