    A small note not mentioned in the above write up:

    Organizers says the UFC is not like a one-night concert. They say fans will be in Calgary from the time the competitors weigh in, days before until the actual fight.

    Perhaps someone should let Dana know of the change to the rules in Calgary? Might just be Dana and Joe checking out half naked guys on the scales.

    I call Bullshit on that one, Dana!! Patty Cakes and all the bullshit and turmoil in Edmonton is why the UFC chose Cowtown over River City. Edmonton is the real MMA capital. But to much crap going on here for them to get involved with.

    The UFC won’t be coming here while the Pat Reid “Reign of Error” show is still in business.
