What provinces are Canada's top fighters from?  Top MMA News has been asked this question a few times by fans and gyms across the country.   In June, Top MMA News answered the question by looking at who was in our top 10 (you can see that post here).  The answer then was British Columbia with 15 fighters in the Top 10 at that time.

Now, Top MMA News looks at it from another angle.  Which province has the most former and current UFC fighters?

I tried to get as many as I could without Wikipedia but I only got about 3/4 of 'em! lol

Ontario (14) – Claude Patrick, Mark Bocek, Mark Holst, Sam Stout, Harold Howard, Dave Beneteau, Geza Kalman, Gary Goodridge, Carlos Newton, Lance Gibson, Ivan Salaverry, Rob MacDonald, Mark Hominick, Jeff Joslin

B.C. (5) – Rory MacDonald, Bill Mahood, John Alessio, Jason Fairn, Denis Kang

Quebec (8) – George St Pierre, Jonathan Goulet, Patrick Côté, Icho Larenas, David Loiseau, Ivan Menjivar, Steve Vigneault, Kaleb Starnes

Alberta (4) – Tim Hague, Victor Valimaki, Jason MacDonald, Jason Day

Manitoba (2) – Joe Doerkson, Krzysztof Soszynski

Nova Scotia (1) – TJ Grant

…and I couldn't figure out where Jason Thacker is from.

Looks like I've got 1 extra from Ontario and Quebec and missing 3 from BC, who am I missing Keith?

One of your Ontarians is a BCer. One of your Quebecers is a BCer

Ah… don't know why I put Starnes under Quebec, is Lance Gibson the Ontarian that should be listed as a BCer? He was born in Toronto but fighting out of Port Moody, BC.

And does anyone know where Thacker is from?

Never mind… that's what I get for trusting Wikipedia, they had both locations listed as his place of birth!
