I didn't read it but did it say anything about the Vancouver Police tried to get the UFC to pay extra for increased security. They rioted in 1994 after the lost the cup. Lame

The stupidest thing I have heard all year

There are plenty of cities that want the ufc to show there fights
Get rid of vancouver and go somewhere else like toronto in canada



I don't think a ill-informed quote from a school board chair should warrant the UFC not returning to Vancouver. Both visits have been successful.

I love how they cited the 1994 riots after UFC 2.... Maybe there is a connection... Lets look at the history

1994 Vancouver ..... UFC 2
2006 Edmonton .... TUF 3 Finale and UFN 5
2010 Montreal ..... UFC 115, TUF 11
2011 Vancouver .... UFC 131

There is definately a trend hear....It must be the UFC.....or the fact that all those teams lost in the playoffs and never won the cup.

I bet that every war started since 2001 coincides with a UFC for a given month....From this you could make a good arguement that there is a UFC event held basically every month....

lol at the caption on the picture accompanying that article.


Wearing a standard UFC game mask, a rioter looks to break a car window like so many Josh Koscheck orbital sockets.






They may be on to something, I'm 99% certain thats an affliction shirt wrapped around that guys head.
