UFC 134: 5 Possible International Destinations for Future UFC Events

After successful shows throughout Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia, the UFC's reach is growing.

The promotion will next return to Brazil, where the organization will hold UFC 134 in Rio de Janeiro on August 27 with more international shows to come. 

Dana White has already vocalized a desire to expand the UFC outside of the United States and over international waters, talking about the promotion returning to Canada and the United Kingdom. 

However, with arguably the second largest market for combat sports, Asia, currently untapped by the UFC, it can be expected that White and company definitely have their sights set on the Asian market, most notably Japan.

Add to that Zuffa's acquisition of Strikeforce and its roster of fighters and the opportunities for expansion overseas become abundant with the addition of even more international fighters.
