PORTLAND, Ore. – Ultimate Fighting Championship UFC Fight Night is coming back to Portland, Oregon’s Moda Center for the first time since 2009 when UFC 102 brought in $1.92 million dollars as fans watched Randy Couture lose to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.
Randy Couture hasn’t been out of the spotlight since his loss to Nogueira because his acting career has taken off after starring in the three Expendables movies, and at the age of 53 it’s unlikely that he will be re-entering the squared circle again in the future.
We can expect announcements in the coming weeks about who will be fighting at the UFC Portland fight night and one thing is for certain it’s going to be big, since UFC fights always bring out thousands of fans who love to watch the action in the Octagon.

About The UFC
The Ultimate Fighting Championship has been a staple on television since the early1990’s and it’s not going away anytime soon since the fights are always fast paced and UFC has produced several big name stars over the years including Ken Shamrock, Couture, Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesner.
Since the UFC always makes millions with each fight thanks to its extensive television deals, Pay-Per-View and other licensing opportunities online we can expect them to continue being a staple of American television along with WWE wrestling in the years to come.
