The UFC is committed to doing big fights on the biggest stages, including more stadium shows in the next year.

While their plans to host a soccer stadium show in Brazil for UFC 147 fell by the wayside after a United Nations conference interfered with their ability to take over an 80,000-seat venue, the UFC isn’t giving up on huge shows in huge venues.

As a matter of fact, if things work out the way they are hoping, January 2013 could bring one of the biggest cards in UFC history into play.

According to UFC president Dana White, they are already looking into a major venue and show to kick off the New Year. Details are sketchy at this time, but the fact that the promotion is even thinking that far ahead means something monstrous could be in the works.

“We’re talking about doing some big fights, if things work out the way they could, we’d end up doing a big fight probably in January,” White said on Thursday.

“If that fight happens, we’re looking at three venues: obviously Las Vegas is always a venue; Dallas, Texas Stadium; and Toronto again.”

The UFC has long toyed with going to Dallas and bringing a show to the massive Cowboys Stadium. The stadium serves as the home to the Dallas Cowboys and is built to hold over 110,000 people at full capacity.

While White wouldn’t reveal what fight they are potentially looking at for the January card, there would seemingly only be a few names that would attract the kind of numbers needed to fill a stadium of that size.

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre comes to mind first and foremost, but there are a few other possibilities as well. Whoever it is, White made it sound like this ambitious endeavor could be one of the biggest UFC shows ever.

“If things go the way that they could go, by January we’re already talking about Dallas, Texas Stadium, Cowboys Stadium,” said White.

Now it’s just a matter of “wait and see” if the pieces fall in place so the UFC can pull off this mega-show teased for January 2013.
