Garry Cook to Expand UFC in the UK
Global Director of UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), Marshall Zelaznik, said that the hand over to the UK under former Man City CEO Garry Cook will break new boundaries.
Cook has recently spent some time in Las Vegas to plan his strategy.
The UFC has already announced an event that will take place at Wembley Area on Feb 16th.
Cook said that “While we are working on finalising the fight card, UFC and fight fans can rest assured that we will bring another compelling card. You can bet that with us returning to London we will bring top fighters from the UK and around the world”.
Cook went on to say that there is a high demand for UFC events in London, the last event was wold-out (Bisping vs. Akiyama) and Cook believes they’ll have no problem selling tickets for future events.
Zelaznik recently said that the UFC has “a very good foothold in England” but he thinks that due to Cook’s insights into the England’s sporting culture he will take the UFC to “even greater heights.” Zelaznik went on to say that he believes under Cook the popularity of UFC will continue to grow in England and that more events will take place in the future.
