Looking to follow boxing’s 50,000+ fans that packed Cowboy Stadium to watch the Pacquiao vs Clottey fight in March, UFC President Dana White tells the Dallas Morning New,

“We’re definitely, 100 percent going to Cowboys Stadium, no doubt about it. With our sport, people will fly in from all over the world … Now that I’ve experienced that place, let me tell you what, it’s incredible,”

He didn’t give a specific event date, but said the UFC was aiming to hold the event “In the next eight months”.

The brand new 80,000+ seat stadium was completed in 2009, just outside of Dallas, Texas.

    Man, I can't wait for that to happen. You know it has to be a Bad A** card. Jerry Jones knows what he's doing, my boy went to the Pacman fight and he said besides Clotty not wanting to fight it was a great experience. This is gonna be good for the UFC.

    Yeah, but just going there to hear Joe Rogan say "Let's see that again" and then look up at that massive TV and see a killer knockout will probably be motivation for many to buy a ticket. I bet it will sell out or at least break a record for the UFC.

    It'll be quita a spectacle. Only thing is, if you're not near the ring, you'll be paying all that money to watch it on the biggest HD screen on the planet. It will be good for the sport.

    Spanky's right…. just went to 111. Had fairly decent seats and still ended up watching the jumbotron most of the night.

    Then again, I've been to events where I've sat cageside, and STILL watched the jumbotron. Only about 20% of the seats in these venues are good for actually watching the fights.
