UFC President Dana White, speaking to Yahoo! Sports’ Kevin Iole, has confirmed the UFC’s plans for the remainder of the calendar year.

After getting Montreal fans’ hopes up about a possible return before the end of the year, White revealed to Iole that they won’t be able to hold a second show this year after all. Instead, UFC 91 is planned for Nov. 15 at the Rose Garden in Portland, Ore. and UFC 92 is planned for Dec. 27 in Las Vegas.

White also stated that a planned Georges St. Pierre vs. B.J. Penn fight will not take place at UFC 92 and will instead happen on Jan. 31 during the promotion’s annual Super Bowl weekend show.

The UFC’s calendar for the remainder of the year is as follows:

* Sept. 6 in Atlanta: UFC 88 featuring Chuck Liddell vs. Rashad Evans
* Sept. 17 in Omaha: UFC Fight Night 15 featuring Nate Diaz vs. Josh Neer
* Oct. 18 in Birmingham, England: UFC 89 featuring Michael Bisping vs. Chris Leben
* Oct. 25 in Rosemont, Ill.: UFC 90 featuring Anderson Silva vs. Patrick Cote
* Nov. 15 in Portland: UFC 91 with Kenny Florian vs. Joe Stevenson
* Dec. 13 in Las Vegas: LIVE Finale for the eighth season of “The Ultimate Fighter”
* Dec. 27 in Las Vegas: UFC 92 with Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Frank Mir
* Jan. 31 (2009): UFC’s annual Super Bowl weekend event

it does make sense now the question i wanna know is when the hell is forrest gonna defend his title?? not gonna be jan 31st
he should have to defend in dec maybe agaist lidell if he does beat evans or could be shogun vs lidell fight finally
they take the penn vs gsp fight off they need another big match up for the new years end bang.
i think it will be fitch vs karo/yoshida winner
shogun will fight either lidell or coleman
big nog vs mir

yeah, I wonder when the LHW title will be on the line again.... maybe december a double title event? vs Chuck if win, vs Machida if win and Chuck loses..... no title fights if they both lose, IMO Rashad and Thiago need to fight each other for the title shot if they both win.

this schuedule is getting crazy, so now penn isnt going to fight in december but on jan. So im thinking jan 31st card is going to be bigger than the december card.

the superbowl weekend card is almost always amongst the top cards of the year, along with the december card. We'll just see how the fights turn out!
