MONTREAL -- The UFC has postponed its March show in Montreal.

UFC 145 was scheduled for March 24 at the Bell Centre. But the UFC scrapped it for now, citing scheduling complications and a desire to deliver a "championship card."

UFC director of Canadian operations Tom Wright says he expects Montreal to stage a show later this year.

Most of the fights announced for the March show will be shifted to a card set for April in Atlanta.

Yeah, Idk what fights were on this card, but there is no main event or even really co-main event worthy.

Gets me kind of excited to think they moved it to deliver a "championship card"... I smell The Reem vs Cigano for this one!

If this card happens during the summer I'll make the trip to see it live.

Yeah they would have had to add a main event to this card in about 2 months, which idk how long those guys need for a training camp.

But adding some of these fights to the other cards will strengthen those cards.
