What will the UFC be announcing next week in Toronto?
Thu, May 20, 2010

QMI Agency

The UFC is coming to Toronto next week to make what it bills a "major announcement."

Co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta and president Dana White have called a media conference for Tuesday at the Rogers Centre.

However the Ontario government said Thursday that there is no change in the works to the long-held opposition to sanctioning mixed martial arts in the province.

White has appeared in Toronto on numerous occasions in the past to try to pressure Premier Dalton McGuinty to change his stance.

A rally in support of mixed martial arts is already scheduled for Saturday on the lawn at Queen's Park.

What do you think the UFC will announce next week? Should mixed martial arts be allowed in Ontario? Have your say in our forum.

Why not let them fight here

and keep some money in Ontario rather then watch the other provinces get rich by our stupidity.Our Premiere has always had blinders on, and he likes to think we know nothing,Dalton what you going to do when lose in the election because of the young voters.

UFC114 was the worst, most boring main event in ufc history!!!Rampage sucked!!! So did Evans!! The ref should have made these 2 idiots fight!

They should announce 10$ off tickets for anyone buying tickets to a MTL event with a Ontario license. :P

hopefully to announce a Brock Lesnar vs. Dalton McGuinty match with no tap-outs allowed...would be beautiful to watch

I bet it's to announce TUF Canada.

If no changes have been made in the law, then how could they announce anything will be coming to Toronto?

From what I've read they have tried to go around the Provincial level and are trying to change the wording in the Criminal Code of Canada. Maybe there is some success on the horizon there. But I'd accept nothing but a concrete date for a UFC event in Toronto.
