The long-talked about UFC -911 “Vengeance” in Baghdad, Iraq was officially added Tuesday to the company’s list of events for 2010. The pay-per-view will be held Sunday, Feb. 21 at the Victory Base Complex, surrounding the Baghdad international airport. “We cannot wait to get to Iraq for UFC 911,” said UFC president Dana White. “The troops love the sport so much, they love the violence, they love seeing some guys face get smashed in. It amps them up, excites them. When we first went to war in Iraq 6 years ago, we knew it was one of the places we needed to get to with live fights, especially now that there is talk about “with-drawing” we need to give our troops the drive to fight more, and what better way than displaying two grown men beating each other to a bloody pulp, it will be beautiful”, he then went on to say, “We will be bringing some of the biggest names in the world to Baghdad plus be giving top Iraqi mixed martial artists the opportunity to showcase their talents in front of a home crowd of a couple thousand U.S. troops” The troops should be getting a nice line-up for the debut event. Though no matches have officially been announced yet Dana White has said that it wont be a regular show, with all the cards featuring U.F.C veterans facing unknown native Iraqi fighters.

This article is meant to show the brutality of mma and compare it to the war in Iraq, how violent and aggressive the soldiers can get. It also makes light of the general American public’s views after 9/11 with most of the population wanting revenge against those responsible for the attacks, even though most of the general public are not fully informed they want to see action, mainly violence.

  1. “even though most of the general public are not fully informed they want to see action, mainly violence.”
