The rumored fight card for UFC’s first-ever event in Canada is looking better and better.

Sources close to both fighters today told MMAjunkie.com that the fight has been discussed and that bout agreements are expected to be signed. The welterweight bout would complement UFC 84’s main event between UFC welterweight champ Matt Serra and interim champ Georges St. Pierre.

That would be huge I bet either the winner of that or Fitch if he wins against Ghono get the next title shot. Would be an ausome fight maybe Karo can finish a fight for once

The Fight Network reports that the rumored Rich Franklin v. Travis Lutter fight will take place at UFC 84, on April 19th, from Montreal.

It looks like Rich will be ready sooner than we thought. This is a nice fight in addition to St. Pierre and Serra.

The Montreal show may be stacked. Shogun's return is rumored for that show.

GSP vs Serra

Karo vs Alves

Sherk vs Penn/Stevenson

Shogun vs TBA

Franklin vs Lutter

Jason MacDonald vs. TBA

Patrick Cote vs. TBA

Jeff Joslin vs. TBA

I think this will be a tough match for Karo, but i see him pulling off a decision victory!!!!!!!!!!!

What a chicken. He knew Fitch was going to beat his ass so he faces a striker that he can dominate with Judo. LAME!

Wake me up when this is over and Fitch gets that title shot he deserves!

Karo will dominate with judo/GNP but it may be a scrap on the feet until Karo gets hit and takes him down. Karo "The Decision" Parisyan ya'll!
