Don’t expect the UFC in Hawaii anytime soon

by:  Jack Bratcher

At a time when MMA is legal in almost every state in the Union and the sport’s largest proponent, the UFC is poised to take over the world, one place the UFC will not be holding an event anytime in the foreseeable future is Hawaii.

Although UFC President Dana White and two of his champions, B.J. Penn and Georges St. Pierre are in Hawaii today holding a press conference to promote their title fight at UFC 94 and even though MMA is wildly popular on the islands, White has stated that it is too expensive to hold an event there.

Georges St. Pierre talks Fitch battle & picks winner of Hughes vs. Serra

Georges St. Pierre talked about his fight with Jon Fitch at UFC 87 with Toronto Sports Radio a few days ago. GSP compared Fitch to “The Terminator” and said it was “very discouraging” because he could not finish him. At one point GSP said he was praying while inside the cage because Fitch, the beast, would not go down. GSP decided to go for the knockout instead of submission because so many have tried in vain to submit Fitch.

GSP is headed to Brazil to vacation and to do some BJJ training.

It seems Matt Hughes left his seat at UFC 87 during the GSP vs. Fitch fight and exited the arena because “it was a boring fight and St. Pierre wasn’t showing anything.” Wow. Does anyone believe for a second that is the real reason, if Hughes did indeed get up and walk out? Rather, one might be inclined to believe that the former welterweight champ was turning a bright shade of green and had to flee the scene before anyone noticed.

Dana White at UFC 87 Post-Fight Press Conference (audio)

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – UFC 87 was a huge success on many levels from ticket sales to the fights themselves. The Target Center in Minneapolis, where the event was held, set a new record gate of $2.2 million dollars with 15,082 attendees.

Dana said, “Georges St. Pierre put on an amazing performance against a guy (Jon Fitch) who would not quit…he took him down at will…GSP looked unstoppable.

And when your boss says this about you, it’s a damn good day: “When Brock said he wanted to fight in the UFC, I told him this isn’t the place to learn how to fight…but he said he wanted to test himself against the best…Heath Herring has a ton of experience, big fights with some of the best fighters in the world…Brock Lesnar looked unbelievable tonight. I was blown away with how well he looked.”

According to Dana, Minneapolis is the best kept secret in America and maybe the world. That’s interesting…I thought that was Lyoto.

Do you see the fight between B.J. Penn and Georges St. Pierre being the next fight for them both? “Definitely,” said White.
