Default Dana wants to host a UFC in Cowboys Stadium

I had a feeling he would want to do this after going there. Would probably break all-time MMA attendance records (at least in the U.S.). Anybody know of MMA attendance records outside of the U.S.?

What a place to stage Brock's fight with the winner of Carwin/Mir!

White: "The Nicest Stadium I Have Seen"

Shortly after the Manny Pacquiao-Joshua Clottey fight last Saturday night, reports began to surface that Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White--who watched the bout from a ringside seat--was highly impressed by Cowboys Stadium, so much so, in fact, that he would reach out to Jerry Jones in the coming weeks, to discuss the potential UFC event at the venue.

Only a week later, according to an article in the Orange County Register (per the Dallas Morning News Cowboys Blog), the discussions are already underway. White, in keeping with the initial reports, couldn't help but gush over Jerry's new digs.

"I would love to do a fight there," White said. "And I'm Mr. Anti-Stadium. Now that I experienced that [expletive] place, let me tell you what: it's incredible. It's incredible. The nicest stadium I have seen in my entire life."

Aside from the inanimate points of interest offered by JerryWorld--the JerryTron, the original pieces of modern art, wine bars, etc--White was impressed by the crowd at Pacquiao-Clottey, a youthful and diverse mix which further convinced him of the potential interest in a JerryWorld-UFC partnership.

"Not only was it a legit crowd, it was a different crowd other than boxing," White continued. "When I walked in that place, I got [expletive] mobbed. It was all young people and people that like UFC and it was a good crowd."
