The potential for an Ultimate Fighting Championship event to draw undesirable gangsters to downtown Vancouver is real, say police.

"It's a fact," said Sgt. Bill Whalen, spokesman for the combined forces special enforcement unit. "We've seen that UFC events attract some ... gang or organized crime members. It's popular with them."

thats just plain stupid.... the bigger any sport gets the bigger mix of people go to the events.

I suppose there is no organized crime folks that attend NBA basketball or NFL Football events either.

I guess the massive drug market and the cesspool that is east hastings isn't responsible for attracting organized crime though?

Give me a break.

The UFC will generate tons of revenue for the province, and Vancouver probably couldn't acquire any more gangsters than it already has. They more or less regulate each other's numbers.

Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) operates 'Insite', North America's first legal injection site for drug users .....but asking for some UFC is just ureasonable!

The only place this is so much as a deal to Dana is Japan, even he's a little concerned about all the yakuza activity over there.

yah the HA carry billy clubs in the backseat of their Bentleys.The richest HA in the world are in BC. Not to mention the triads, big circle boys, chinese and russian mob, universal soldiers and the growing United Nations gang. Not to forget the indo canadians, but they mostly kill each other.
They own gyms and training centers and many legit business. I noticed a full patch HA with a 2-0 record on sherdog the other day.:so Id say they are supportive of mma....
heres an article saying BC is a world hub for organized crime.Kinda shows the complete ignorance in prozacs post. just use google if you need more proof...
