    How long until UFC decide to go to Saudi Arabia?

    WWE made a deal with them, boxing going to be airing the Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr II there, when do you think the UFC will go there?

    Obviously Saudi Arabia is a terrible place. But it is super lucrative for businesses. The controversey of the reporter that got beheaded last year, no women allowed. It's truly a place that is stuck in the olden days. I have zero doubts, with the right amount of $$$, UFC is going there next year.

    The UFC had an event booked in Saudi last year and cancelled it because of the human rights violations etc. So not sure they'll change, but you have to imagine if the price is right they'll go there, nothing to really suggest they won't.

    It's kinda sad how the mighty dollar always wins over decency.

    Once that dollar figure in the offer is big enough the UFC will be there for sure
