Tom Wright says we can expect some UFC Fight Nights across Canada.

Never gonna happen in Ottawa. This town is the most un-business-friendly ,"concerned citizen" podunk town in Canada. We get it from all ends: the pinch-faced conservative idiots, the high-brow intellectuals and the hippy-dippy lefties. Both the Sun and The Citizen have written the most ill-informed and out of date op-eds on MMA the past year. Which is ironic, considering the Sun covers UFC and the events in Hull.

       Best of luck to whatever city gets it; it ain't gonna be us.

We know the UFC is marketable in any city it is going to go. For canada, They would need edmonton and calgary because both have the big fan base and the arenas and you can do ppvs. hamilton is possible as well with the copps. with Halifax I can't see that happening anytime soon. If we were to get something it would be a fight night because the biggest arena holds 10 000 and then throw another 2000 on the floor. For halifax to happen TJ Grant would need to get to main card status and a win in december would do that or if jason macdonald makes a good run when he returns because he is from here. the other thing is the rest of the international scene because there is a rumoured austrilla event around the corner, plus there is brazil as well on the rader. I think all these events in canada will take a little time
