UFC Looking To Secure Set Dates For Montreal, Toronto Events

The UFC is growing by the minute in terms of popularity in Canada.

Now, they want to make sure Canadian fans know exactly when to expect UFC events to take place.

Tom Wright, the UFC’s Director of Canadian Operations, said the promotion has two dates saved for 2013, and are looking to lock those weekends down as Canadian cards going forward.

“Our plans are to have the third weekend in March as the Montreal date on a regular basis,” said Wright, during a press conference Thursday, “and the third week in September for the regular date in Toronto.”

Wright believes that in making sure dates are set well in advance, fans will be able to plan accordingly.

The UFC returns to Canada in November with UFC 154.
