UFC on FX 7: What's Next for the Winners from Belfort vs. Bisping
Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

In the old days, by which I mean 2011 and earlier, the UFC's second home on the international market was Canada. Fans flocked to events in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver; it was the hottest ticket in town, and most events sold out within minutes of the actual on-sale date. 

Canada isn't the UFC's version of Mecca. Not anymore. That honor belongs to Brazil, and the UFC just concluded one of what is expected to be four or even five trips to various Brazilian markets over the course of 2013. And that  number doesn't even include two full seasons of The Ultimate Fighter, a show that is far more popular in Brazil than it currently is in North America.

We'll have plenty of time to talk about the UFC's future prospects in Brazil at some point. But for now, it's time to put on the old matchmaker's cap, stare into my trusty and dusty Dollar General crystal ball and figure out what might be next for each of the winners from the UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Bisping main card.

Shall we begin? We shall.
