Several of the UFC’s biggest stars were in attendance today at a press conference for the promotion, which included unveiling the company’s 2015 schedule.

Very few weeks will go by next year without a UFC event, as 45 cards have been announced for 2015.  Once again, the Octagon will be heading to various countries around the world, including Canada, Mexico, Australia, Britain and Brazil.

The promotion also relayed that Holland, Poland, Russia, Chinda, South Korea, the Middle East and the Philippines are all possible destinations.

In addition, UFC President Dana White confirmed that the upcoming bout between heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez and interim champ Fabricio Werdum, will take place in Mexico.

Today’s event was also supposed to feature a “special announcement”, however, shortly into the presser, White relayed that the promotion did not “get it done.” As a result no announcement was made.

Some of the fighters who attended today’s presser included Anderson Silva, Ronda Rousey, Chris Weidman, Nick Diaz, Alexander Gustafsson, Jon Jones, Daniel Cormier, Conor McGregor, Cat Zingano,  Dennis Siver and Vitor Belfort.

The 2015, UFC schedule is posted below:
