As a Canadian, I’m used to getting the shitty end of the stick. Crappy exchange rate. Double the taxes. No fucking UFC. But it finally looks like the tide is turning, because not only is the UFC coming to Montreal in April, it looks like they’re pulling out all the stops to make their arrival in Canada a monumental event.
First we have Georges St Pierre who will be fighting Matt Serra for the real WW belt, provided Serra is healthy enough to defend it. He says he will be, but who cares if he’s not? If Serra is nixed I bet we get GSP vs Karo, which is all right by me.
Now we have rumors that the Rich Franklin / Travis Lutter match that was initially proposed, denied, and then cancelled due to injury may now be held in Montreal as well!
Finally, Shogun Rua took some time off giving excuses for his loss to tell people his next fight will be … you guessed it! In April! Add Canadians Jason MacDonald, Patric Cote, and Jonathan Goulet to the card and you’ve got a card that’s already shaping out to be the best of the year! And in my own backyard to boot. Thank you Flying Spaghetti Monster! Thank you so much!
Those of you who tuned into the Low Blow this week have already heard, but we’re cooking up some big things for Montreal as well in the form of an MMA convention. Details are still sketchy at the moment since the Montreal show was only confirmed over Christmas holidays, but in the next week or two all of the details will be revealed and you guys will be blown the fuck away. For reals, if you live within 10-15 hours driving distance from Montreal, you DON’T want to miss this one.
