Abu Dhabi, UAE – The world’s greatest indoor sporting event goes outdoors on April 10 as the Ultimate Fighting Championship® organisation lands in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates for the first time.

I'm really interested to see what the PPV buyrate will be for this event.  Typically the foreign cards don't do very well, but this is a double main event with two titles on the line.  Not to mention Renzo Gracie who has ties to the region.  Also, this will be the first OUTDOOR event for a UFC.  I wonder if this could be a precusor to an stadium event in Hawaii possibly, or the often rumored event that Dana White wants to hold in Fenway Park in Boston?
