In the aftermath of UFC 134, UFC President Dana White declared the promotion would be traveling back to Brazil as often as possible. He apparently meant it.

With a return to Rio de Janeiro already slated for January, White may have accidentally revealed the UFC's next trip down south during the UFC 139 post-fight press conference.

When asked by a Brazilian reporter if plans were in the works for Anderson Silva to headline a June card in Sao Paulo, the UFC boss was taken aback.

"How's this stuff get out," a surprised White exclaimed, before coyly continuing. "It might be. What happens is, (the media) gets all this sneaky (news) and then I say stuff at the press conference and my whole crew goes, ‘What are you doing? We didn't say anything yet!'

"I don't know. I don't know if we're going to Sau Paulo in June, and if Anderson Silva is headlining the card. Have no clue," he concluded with a sly grin creeping across his face. "That would be awesome though."
