The UFC will stage its first fight in Ontario on Apr. 30 at the Rogers Centre, president Dana White said Tuesday morning.
White told media at a press conference at the Air Canada Centre that he expects the UFC 131 event will be the most attended of all time.
There is no word yet on who will be on the fight card.
The provincial government expects that a major UFC event in Ontario would draw up to 30,000 fans and generate up to $6 million for the local economy, including cash from hotel rooms rentals, restaurant meal expenditures and retail purchases.
