UFC WAITING ON THE CANADIENS
“We want to come to Montreal, Canada in October/November 2007!” stated a delighted Marc Ratner of the UFC. “I’ve been talking with the Bell Centre and they want us there, but the Montreal Canadiens hockey team always comes first!” he explained in a jovial voice. “We’d love to have Georges St-Pierre on the card of course, but we’ll have to wait and see what happens on Aug. 25 in his fight against Josh Koscheck at UFC 74.”
“Once the NHL releases their 2007/08 hockey schedule, we’ll be able to sure up a date. I realize TKO 30 is happening in the Bell Centre on Sept. 28, so we’ll try not to go too close to that,” elaborated Ratner.
The NHL schedule is due to be released on July 11, 2007 so hopefully Canadian MMA fans won’t have to wait much longer to hear official confirmation of the UFC’s first show north of the border! Read the rest @ ->LINK
