Cool Will Canadians finally get to kick Butt on our own turf?

Dana White has been pressuring the Government of Ontario ( that's in Canada for all you Yankees ) over the past year to allow the UFC to host events there. IT'S ABOUT TIME!! I as a Canadian residing in Ottawa ( that's the capital of Canada for all you Yanks ) have been thirsting to attend a UFC event. Although it's nice to see them succeeding in the States, It will be much nicer to see our fighters kicking some butt on our own turf instead of down there. DANA, KEEP THE HEAT ON MY GOVERNMENT!!!

I have read a few articles that said Ontario is pretty stongly opposed to mma. I dont see them sanctioning any events in the near future unfortunately...

First Dana should push for putting the UFC in other U.S. states. Maybe one day the UFC will be all over North America. We can only hope.

the skydome can hold 50000 people. if they hold it there the place would be sold out!


Halifax ,Nova Scotia held its first ulimate cage fight about 2 months ago, alot of people tried to stop it, but council approved it and had strict guidelines as to what can and canot be done during a fight, the forum sold out 6000 tickets to event.

They always have TKO events in quebec. Why not just have a UFC there. There is a king of the cage organization and they had fight's in regina. It has to happen soon.
