In 2013 the UFC began its true exploration with Mexican and Latin American talent with the first development program for fighters financed by the promoter.
From there fighters such as flyweight champion Brandon Moreno, Yair ‘Pantera’ Rodríguez or Ecuadorian Marlon ‘Chito’ Vera came out, who continue to shine in the octagon.
But it is time to take the next step. The UFC was set to open its first Performance Institute in Mexico City in late 2020, a plan that delayed the COVID-19 pandemic, but is holding firm for UFC President Dana White.
White shared images of what the facade would look like on his social networks and the response from the fans was immediate: “I don’t know how I didn’t think about it before, but it will have the colors of the Mexican flag. I liked the idea. “
Entering the Mexican capital is just the beginning. It is an ambitious project in which they plan to have two or three facilities on Mexican soil and one more in Puerto Rico to ensure that Latin American talent can be found.
