UFC Update: UFC president Dana White has reiterated his organization is heading to Canada. "We're coming there for sure. Absolutely, 2007 we'll be there." ... Montreal is "not necessarily" the destination, he added in an interview. "We could end up anywhere." Reminded that Ontario does not sanction MMA, he said: "That's not a problem either. People just need to be educated. You'd be surprised what can get done if you really put some effort towards it." ... White says the ARCO Center in Sacramento sold out in three days for the Nov. 18 "UFC 65: Bad Intentions" card featuring welterweight champion Matt Hughes and Montreal challenger Georges St. Pierre. ... Former middleweight champion Rich Franklin underwent surgery last week to repair his nose, fractured in three places in a title defence loss to Brazil's Anderson Silva at "UFC 64: Unstoppable" earlier this month . . . White also confirmed that B.J. Penn was injured in his third-round loss to Hughes at UFC 63: Hughes vs. Penn. "Hughes broke his ribs in that second round," the UFC president said ... White says his organization plans "five or six" cards in Britain next year. The cards will all be available on pay per view here . . . The next season of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality TV show will feature 155 pounders - some veterans and some newcomers. White says he's not sure what the prize will be yet. The UFC will start casting in two weeks and the show will begin shooting in January . . . The UFC has a new show on Spike TV. "Inside The UFC," a magazine-type weekly show hosted by Joe Rogan, will debut Nov. 9 (check local listings). Spike already airs six other UFC-themed shows: "The Ultimate Fighter," "UFC Unleashed," "UFC Fight Night," "UFC All Access," "UFC Countdown" and "UFC Knockouts." ... Jason MacDonald did more than turn heads with his win over Ed (Short Fuse) Herman in his UFC debut on the undercard of the recent Tito Ortiz-Ken Shamrock televised fight. The Alberta middleweight won the card's "submission of the night" award. "He looked awesome," said White.
