UFC President Dana White Expected In Mexico City To Announce Sport's Mexico Debut

Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White will be in Mexico City on April 29 to "finally make an official announcement" of UFC's first fight to be held in Mexico, which is expected to take place in November at Mexico City Arena, according to Carlos Contreras Legaspi of LA AFICION. White visited Mexico City in March "to finalize details of the match." The UFC's Mexican debut has been delayed by a shoulder injury suffered by Mexican heavyweight Caín Velásquez, who will likely face the winner of a bout on Saturday between Fabricio Werdum and Travis Browne (LA AFICION, 4/15).
