UFC 131 will be April 30 in Toronto
UFC 131 will be held at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario. Dana White, along with Tom Wright, made this announcement at a press conference in Toronto today.
The crowd at the Rogers Centre should become the biggest in UFC history. Dana White expects that “attendance records will be broken.” The biggest sporting event there was a Grey Cup that attracted 54,088 fans. The event should have a similar configuration as the WWE had for Wreslemania which drew 68,237 spectators.
In addition to the UFC card, a UFC Fan Expo will also be held on April 29 and 30 at the Direct Energy Centre.
This announcement comes on the heels of yesterday’s announcement that Ontario will start taking applications from promoters to hold events in Ontario.
