UFC Opens Office in Toronto
As expected it was announced that the UFC will be opening an office in Toronto, geared at growing mixed martial arts in Ontario and Canada. The man they are looking to lead this charge is Tom Wright, who was the ex CFL Commissioner, as well as 11 years working for Adidas. Tom has the right combination of skills the UFC was looking for. A combination of business and sports experience is exactly what they were looking for.
One of the first priorities will be the sanctioning of MMA in Ontario, and growing the sport in Canada.
It was interesting to hear that Canada accounts for 17% of the UFC’s business.
This can only mean good things for the growth of mixed martial arts in Canada.
