The UFC makes its middle eastern debut this weekend.

A temporary arena will house UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi, which is no stranger to the mixed martial arts but the spectacle that is the UFC may  be something new to the locals.

The event could open doors in uncharted territory.  It's the UFC's first outdoor event and it will be held in the heat.

UFC has never made it a secret that worldwide expansion is in the plans.

On the card?  Some potentially great matchups as middleweight champion Anderson Silva will defend his title belt against Demian Maia, and lightweight champion B.J. Penn will square off with Frank Edgar.

Popular Matt Hughes is up against Renzo Gracie,a fighter  whose coaching relationships in the United Arab Emirates helped bring UFC 112 to this new part of the world.
