Congratulations Ontario!  Your first sanctioned MMA event is now officially scheduled.

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…

i would love to see other promotions , but i doubt it. I think there will be major blockage of cock/hassles from most municipalities.

Anyone thinking about going to TO for this?  Maybe a TMN forum group could meet up?

I am definetly heading to Toronto (my old stomping grounds) for that weekend and event. The whole city is going to come alive.

 

As far as municipals shutting down local events… it's going to happen, but limited to white picket fence small communities. For a province so far in debt, I don't think anyone with enough muscle can also deny the money MMA will bring.

At least we don't have to fight on scarey Reserves anymore. Laugh

And, a meet up sounds cool.

I'll be there for sure. It's about time I don't have to drive/fly for hours and spend a bundle to see events. I just hope they don't pull a "it's gonna be huge so it doesn't matter who we put on the card" card.

Sounds like it may have two title fights so you do not have to worry.

 

Also…this UFC is now UFC 129.

Looks like Cain is out 6-8 months. That's one title fight off the card…
