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.

I agree Enlightened in Ottawa. I was actually happy that the government blocked it. Not surprised that they allowed it though. You have to be a sick puppy to enjoy this so-called sport.

I guess that Ontario's Neanderthals and knuckle-draggers need something to look forward to after hunting season is over.

Clearly evolution takes a very, very long time.

It's too bad that the government gave in and let this lowly form of "entertainment" in. I was actually proud of the government's stance, for once.

MMA at the Rogers Center? The stands are too far away for NFL football! You won't be able to see an armbar from even the 100 level, and the field level will be below the mat. If I'm stuck watching the jumbotron all night, I'd rather go to a sportsbar with pay per view and not pay $90 per ticket and $15 a beer.
