May 4- Open

May 18 - Open
May 25 - Taylor Swift (and typically the memorial day weekend show in Vegas)
So what better weekend than May 4 (Cinco De Mayo) in Texas! book it before boxing does, they usually have a big PPV, I doubt they would try and compete with Silva/GSP.
Pack on a great PPV card and people will flock!
Rogers Center (SkyDome) Toronto
May 4 - (Blue Jays day 5 of a 6 game home-stand)
May 11- Open
May 18 - Open
May 25 - Blue Jays (day 6 of a 9 game home-stand)
It's been done, people will probably attend cause of GSP and being a stadium show, but Jon "The Future" Jones has failed twice to bring the hype to Toronto
If it does happen (I say if because it's only Dana saying this to a Canadian sports channel, hours before a Canadian event, before the two fighters have signed a contract, and GSP still needs to beat Condit) I think it happens at the Rogers Centre.
Cowboys stadium is a big risk -- will 55,000-60,000 Americans go to see a Canadian and Brazilian? They would need to load the rest of the card up with quality American fighters to make it sell out I think. If an American on the main card / co-main even goes down with an injury, that could spell disaster for the event. Just look back at some attendance numbers from numbered PPVs in the USA, they haven't sold out an arena show in a while, and they are in some cases giving out 1000s of free tickets to inflate attendance numbers.
If it's done in Toronto, they could sell 60,000 tickets even if it was just GSP/Silva on the card.
For some reason I don't see it happening in Brazil -- the Rogers Centre is the safe choice.
