Weidman vs Belfort Card - Promoted as a brazil vs usa card?

I just saw the thread of the shoot they did from belfort/weidman with their respective flags..

 

do you think they should base the whole event on that scheme ? They already have silva/sonnen on it so it would kinda make sense atleast to make the other 3 main card fights usa/brazil matchups..

 

discuss.

 

IMO it would make sense especially since the already have a title fight and a big rivalry on it..now they just have to stack it up with some other good high quality matchups and that will make for many buys since i believe people are interested in seeing kinda which country is the best..

If they didn't do it with UFC 117 (Silva/Sonnen, JDS/Roy, Alves/Fitch, etc) they won't do it with this card imo. They made another unofficial USA/Brazil card more recently as well and didn't market it that way and I'm glad. Too gimmicky and everybody can read between the lines anyways.

It's a Brazilian event, it's going to feature a guy from Brazil in most (if not all) matches anyway. And you have to have someone across the ring, and there are a lot of American fighters. It's natural to end up with that kind of understated theme. No need to make an overt alienating promotional decision like that.

Wow, I don't know why I had assumed this was an event in Brazil. I suppose I should go try and clean some of this egg off my face.

 

Perhaps I had mixed up it's location due to Chael and Wandy being TUF:Brazil coaches. My mistake.

They did a USA vs. Canada event years ago (featured the first Penn/GSP fight if I remember correctly, plus Franklin defending the Middleweight title), and Dana talked about how much he didn't like the country vs. country theme for the PPV, so I doubt you'll see another event promoted that way.
