UFC Heads to Toronto In April 2011


UFC President Dana White has made it no secret that Toronto and New York City are the last North American feathers he wants to pluck for his cap. After officials stalled for years on the issue of regulating MMA in Ontario, they abruptly changed course in 2010 and on Tues., the UFC announced that a card will take place on April 30, 2011 in Toronto at the Rogers Centre, formerly known as the Skydome. The large, multi-purpose stadium is home to Major League Baseball’s Toronto Blue Jays, and White is quoted in the press release as saying that, “Toronto is going to break the record and host the biggest mixed martial arts event ever in North America.” The company will also host its second Canadian UFC Fan Expo that weekend in Ontario.
