UFC 172: Caín Velasquez vs. Fabricio Werdum in Mexico!!

- The UFC will soon be announcing its Mexican debut.
Official confirmation of the Mexico City event will be coming in the next few weeks, according to Mexican publication Aficion.
The event will be UFC 172 and will air on pay-per-view. The headline fight will see heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez face Brazilian contender Fabricio Werdum.
It is penciled in for the weekend of either April 19 or April 26 2014. Diego Sanchez, Gilbert Melendez, and Kelvin Gastelum are also likely for the card.
The UFC’s efforts towards Mexican expansion could be heard clearly in recent televised events, with Dana White and the commentary team repeatedly dropping references to fighters such as Sanchez being “Mexican warriors”, a term they have never used before.
