UFC plans mega-event with Silva vs Jones and Velasquez vs. Dos Santos
The twentieth anniversary of the Ultimate Fighting Championship will be celebrated with a mega-event at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium. According to journalist Dave Meltzer, the organization plans a card with Anderson Silva vs. Jon Jones and the third fight between heavyweights Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos in the 12th or 19th of October.
The initial plan was to promote the show for the first time in New York, but it is unlikely that Madison Square Garden is released to receive the first show of the Ultimate that city, where the sport is not yet released. Silva, Jones, Velasquez and Dos Santos are four of the biggest names of today and the mission would fill a stadium with a capacity of 100 thousand people.
Brazilian fighters have in common sponsorship from Nike and Corinthians. Anderson Silva is the current middleweight champion and make a combined weight fight against light heavyweight champion, Junior dos Santos while just to earn the right by the belt dispute to 120kg with a win over Mark Hunt by KO.
Question to readers of the blog: If confirmed both fights, he is the greatest card of all time in the UFC?
