Money. Neither Condit nor MacDonald is money, but in Canada, MacDonald is the Dream of GSP II.

Ticket sales matter to the UFC. PPV is great, places like Toronto and Rio and TOkyo offer sure-fire on-the-grounf IN ADVANCE money.

In my opinion this fight doesn't make sense at all at this point. Carlos is coming off a loss and Rory is on the verge of getting a title shot against a guy he says he won't fight. But it's happening and I'm sure Condit doesn't really care where he fights.

Thats alright we consider everyone east of Saskatchewan either a Frenchman or a Newfie


Seriously though last time it was in Vancouver which is what 300 and some odd KM (140Miles) from Rory's home town.

I meant more, that for someone from BC like me, Montreal isn`t a home field advantage. It`s enemy territory.

Would rather fight in California or Nevada because that`s just a short plane flight for friends and family as opposed to a trans continental odyssey.

Never mind its drastically cheaper to fly to Vegas.

People don't seen to realize patriotism only goes so far, BJ would have likely still been the crowd favorite in Montreal, now admittedly Rory would have receivedl a somewhat more favorable reception.

Also Alberqurque NM is actually closer to Montreal than Kelowna BC is.

You can't honestly believe that BJ would have been cheered over Rory in Montreal. I realize that it's Montreal, but the number of people who flock from Ontario to these Montreal events is unreal. I'd say the Anglophones outnumber the Francophones. And I'd hate to say it, but we in Ontario don't have this asinine view of the West that you Westerners seem to have of the East (even though Ontario is Central Canada). Rory wouldn't face backlash purely because he's from BC. Seriously, what nonsense.

Granted we dislike the French and the Newfies just as much, lol.

I am not saying Rory would have seen backlash from being from the west simply that BJ is still an icon who would be beloved virtually anywhere he fights.
