Earlier in the year, UFC Canada head Tom Whatever announced that the promotion would be returning to the great white north sometime in December, and somewhere in Ontario or Quebec. Now the date and city have been announced and surprise surprise, the place that drew 55,000 people back in April got it:
The UFC is headed back to the city of Toronto for a second time in 2011, where it hosted the most successful show in company history, co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta told ESPN.com on Tuesday.
UFC 140 will take place at the Air Canada Centre on Dec. 10.
Yep, the Air Canada centre, not the Skydome. So it should be fun watching the gnashing of teeth and pulling of hair as the two and a half million people in the city jockey for 19,000 tickets. Har. Just kidding. As if there’ll be any left after the UFC Scalper Team Fight Club is done.
