White plans to expand the geography of UFC tournaments

UFC CEO Dana White said during a recent conference call that the organization should hold more tournaments in different cities, rather than focusing only on the UFC Apex Hall in Las Vegas, where Fight Night tournaments are typically held.

"If you think back to how we built this business, we held tournaments in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, New York, Los Angeles. We've held tournaments in just about every city in the world. I've been saying for a long time that it's time for us to get out of UFC Apex and hold more tournaments in different cities," White said at the press conference.

Recall that the UFC On ESPN 56 tournament was held on May 11 at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis, USA.
