Despite multiple reports, the UFC is apparently not planning a trip to Brazil for November 15. The event was originally supposed to be UFC on FOX Sports 1 4, however MMAJunkie reports that the promotion has no current plans for the reported show.
Apparently, the promotion extensively explored the option of holding the November 15 fight card in Brazil but never moved forward with their plans. As one of our readers pointed out on the original post, FOX Sports 1 was already obligated to show a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event on the discussed night. The already scheduled event likely played a role in the promotion’s plans to host the additional card.
There is a possibility the UFC could try to schedule a card for that particular week due to the fact that it is the UFC’s 20th anniversary. Either way, UFC 167 will still top off the week’s action in Las Vegas.
