The excitement Chuck Liddell’s visit to the Philippines inspired could be a sign the UFC will spread its wings over the planet even more. The possibility of an event taking place in the country in mid 2009 was leaked by the UFC’s own site. According to the bulletin, more than four thousand people went to watch the Iceman train at a mall in Pasay.
This was not the first time a UFC idol received special treatment from the Philippine people. Last month Brandon Vera visited the country and just like Liddell drew thousands of fans to his training sessions.
According to information from the UFC itself, the event in the Philippines should bring together local athletes and well-known stars from the American scene. Should their popularity be taken into account, Liddell and Vera should be among those called up.
