An article by MMAKanvas detailed the likelihood of a UFC event being held in Adelaide next year.
UFC Director of Operations (for the region), Tom Wright, stated that 2 or 3 events are planned in Australia for 2015. Adelaide is being considered as one of the cities to host an event.
Tom Wright also shared that the UFC is working to overturn cage bans in Victoria and Western Australia. If discussions with state governments fail Wright said “…maybe we have to go to Canberra, and do something on a federal basis”. Wright is optimistic after his discussions with state Labor ministers in Victoria, and expects if they win the state election this November, that a stadium show in Melbourne is likely.
