UFC LogoEverybody across the globe wants to know when the UFC is coming to their city, country or region. And if the UFC has already been there, when are they coming back?

One of the locals that UFC president Dana White is asked about over and over again is Puerto Rico.

In a recent online chat presented by Metro PCS, White had a little bit more information on Puerto Rico, saying that it’s still a work in progress, but that they are making headway and the Octagon will be there soon.

“We’ve been focused on Puerto Rico,” said White. “We’ve been doing some work down there.”

Puerto Rico has a population of more than 3.7 million people, so the UFC isn’t taking the U.S. territory lightly.

“We want to do a pay-per-view down there,” added White. “We know it’s a big market for us. I will say that we’ll probably do an event there in 2014.”
