The UFC made it’s first appearance in the Lonestar State in April of 2007 when they filled the Toyota center with 15,000 fans and set the live gate record.
If everything goes as planned, the UFC will return to Texas sometime during fall or winter of this year, this time in San Antonio. They have their eyes on the home of the Spurs at the AT&T Center or if they run into scheduling conflicts there, the UFC also mentioned Freeman Coliseum which is located next door as a possibility.
“San Antonio is very much on our radar,” said Marc Ratner, vice president of government and regulatory affairs for the UFC. “If we can make it work, it will happen.” Sometime between September and December are the dates the UFC is looking at.
