Dana White Says Tyrone Spong Asked To Fight For UFC Ireland

“UFC Fight Night: Dublin” was held today in Ireland and GLORY kickboxing champion Tyrone Spong was sitting cage-side for the event and liked it so much he asked Dana White if he could fight for the UFC in Ireland.

Spong just signed a new deal with WSOF in January but the details of his current employment with the company is unknown. Whether Spong was joking or not, White was quick to tell that Spong was not the only one asking for a fight in Ireland. White mentioned during the post-fight press conference that every fighter under UFC contract now wants to fight in Ireland as well.
