MMA Keeps Growing in Canada in 2011
With the opening up of the Ontario market to MMA shows, expect a lot more promotions to pop up on the map of Canada. Not only in Ontario, but promotions seem to be debuting all over Canada. While none of these are firmed up, Top MMA News thought to publish the ones that they have been made aware of.
Since the Ontario Athletic Commission started accepting applications by promoters to hold events on January 1st, Top MMA News has heard the following cities have had promotions targeting them:
- Windsor at Caesar’s Hotel & Casino
- Orillia at Casino Rama – announced The Reckoning on April 2nd.
These are only the ones the Top MMA News is aware of. There are probably another 20 that we have not heard about.
- Lethbridge – Expect a new promotion to compete with the long running Rumble in the Cage in early 2011.
- Edmonton – Ryan Ford has announced a Real Deal Fight Nights MMA and Boxing show
- Montreal – While not new, Ringside is expecting to take their show to the home of the Montreal Canadiens – the Bell Centre – in what promises to be their biggest show to date.
