They've hit a snag...
The UFC have put plans to hold a season of The Ultimate Fighter in the Philippines and a live show in Russia on hold. Dana White told MMAjunkie that both were up in the air, with the Russian card behind held up due to political and military tensions between the country and Ukraine.
White said, "Philippines should have been done already, but it's not. Russia's a tougher place to navigate, especially now."
He did not specifically elaborate on the reasons for the Philippines delay. The promotion is expanding to other countries, with a Mexican show set for later this year and The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America debuting in August.
