UFC president Dana White has long schemed to book the promotion into AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The stadium is the home of the Dallas Cowboys and has hosted Manny Pacquiao fights among other mega-events. With Ronda Rousey’s win last night over Bethe Correia at UFC 190 we may be getting closer to making that reality.
After her 34-second win, Rousey told FS1, “I would like to be on the Aldo-McGregor card if possible. That would be really cool.”
At the post-fight press conference Dana elaborated, “I’d like to put her on that card,” White confirmed. “That card is probably going to be in Dallas, Texas stadium. December (5), I hope so. We’re working on it.”
Fox Sports elaborated on the possibilities.
“White said he wasn’t sure how the UFC would scale the stadium for attendance if they end up putting the show there in December. The huge building could hold more than 100,000 fans, but there’s no telling how much seating the UFC would plan for if the card comes together.”
