UFC Possibly Returning to Germany in 2010
Fighters Only Magazine is reporting that Marek Lieberberg, who served as co-promoter for UFC 99 in Cologne, is looking into the possibilities of returning to Germany as early as April 2010.
“I believe that in April 2010, a second mixed martial arts event will be held at the [König-Pilsener] arena in Oberhausen,” he said recently. “They have expressed an interest. ”
Oberhausen is much smaller the Cologne, however König-Pilsener Arena seats 13,000 and the city itself is well-positioned to draw fans from countries outside Germany.
UFC 99: The Comeback, which took place on June 13, 2009 in the Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany drew 12,800 spectators and a $1.3 million gate.
