UFC Moscow Official

At long last, the UFC has made its debut in Russia official. As previously reported by Denis Geyko of RT Sport, the promotion will take over the Olympic Stadium in the Russian capital of Moscow on September 15.

 

“Russia is a key part of UFC’s international expansion strategy,” UFC Senior Vice President of International and Content David Shaw said of this UFC Moscow card in a Wednesday release. “The demand from our fans to bring a live event to Russia has been overwhelming, and with the vast potential this market holds for us, we knew this was the perfect time to bring UFC Fight Night to Moscow.”

 

In anticipation of this Russian debut, the UFC has hired Andre Gromkovski as the new Vice President for UFC Russia. Gromkovski will lead the promotion’s charge into the country.

 

For the UFC, Russia remains one of the last untapped MMA hotbeds on the planet. It will be interesting to see how the promotion handles its expansion into the country.

Why is this a fight night and not a PPV?

I'm assuming because of the time difference? Or because, as Khabib said, Russians are poor and can't afford PPV.

Russians are literally the kings of piracy, if there was a PPV there would be about 10 people who paid for it and a multiple millions who are watching it on illegal streams.

Pretty sure Khabib isn't going to be on the card which means there's no one worthy of headlining
