What do you think about the UFC staging a fight in Toronto?
Tue, December 7, 2010

By IRENE THOMAIDIS, QMI Agency

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.

What's your opinion on the UFC coming to Toronto? Should mixed martial arts be allowed in Ontario? Have your say in our forum.

Good to hear - Thanks Government .. Can i now buy liquor or atleast wine in the grocery store in the next 10 yrs ?? Have to admit the ACC will not be the best place to watch such an event - Better to watch at a sports bar by FAR !!

Awesome news!

To present a UFC fight at the Rogers Center is laughable. The view is awfull at best during a football game....just imagine trying to see 2 men fighting each other.

It's totally disrespectfull of the people paying 50$ each to see the event. You're better to stay at home and wathc it on PPV. It has to be at the ACC....

As Big John McArthy would say: "Let's get it on!!" I hope that the UFC puts on a show worthy of the anticipated sell out. I would like to see at least 2 belts on the line.

@Englightened in Ottawa: I'm a VERY left leaning Liberal and even I like UFC. You can't generalize the UFC fan base... Even if you don't like it.. OTHERS DO.

Who cares as it's not a sport in my mind. It's crap!!!!!!!!!!
