If you asked UFC President Dana White the question posed in the headline his answer will be, “Yes.” White talked about having a card n Russia at length after this Saturday’s UFC on FOX 6 card where he spoke about a superfight that almost happened between former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and legendary fighter Fedor Emelianenko, the popularity of MMA in Russia, and the surprising news that the UFC has been working to get a card in Russia for a while…

White told the media:

“I would say this year We could be in Russia. I think what’s going to go on in Russia is we’ll put on a live event there first before an ‘Ultimate Fighter’ season. We’ll do a live event in Russia, and just like every other event we’ve done, you do the live event and it explodes. Mixed martial arts is already big over there. Sambo is big over there. We will do a live event and then we’ll see where the market goes from there.”
