UFC Planning Three Events In Canada This Year

UFC president Dana White has made it his mission to keep Canada happy, as the UFC boss announced three UFC cards for this year in the country.

In addition, White said during a press conference in Calgary earlier this week, the UFC will look to hold three shows a year in Canada on a regular basis.

You guys are awesome. You know, I always say it; I love this place. Man, I love coming up to Canada. You guys are the best fans in the world, we appreciate it so much.

UFC 149 will be held in Calgary on July 21, with Jose Aldo defending his UFC featherweight title in the main event. UFC 152 is set for Toronto on September 22, while UFC 154 will take place November 17 from Montreal.

Several Canadian MMA superstars were on hand or joined the press conference via satellite, including UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.

GSP told the crowd that he would like nothing more than to return at UFC 154 in Montreal to unify the UFC welterweight title with Carlos Condit. However, nothing has been made official in regards to the card.
